My doctor started me on Prozac last week for PPD. My PPD is very severe and I need to be on some kind of medication. I was exclusively breastfeeding, but have started supplementing formula. I was noticing her spitting up more when I started the prozac which is a side effect. I hate the fact that I am giving her formula but I have read prozac isnt the best antidepressant to be on while breastfeeding. What antidepressant were you put on for PPD that was considered safe for breastfeeding?
