I have an anxiety disorder along with obbsesive compulsive disorder which I normally take Zoloft to control. I haven't been on Zoloft since I started trying to get pregnant with my little one who is now almost three months. In the past few weeks my anxiety has been getting really bad and what I am anxious about is the fear of losing my son. With my first son I was able to stay off of the meds while I was breastfeeding because my anxiety wasn't as intense and had nothing to do with fears of losing my baby. My OCD really comes into play here because I feel like if I don't focus on it the fear then something will happen to him. I would normally not consider getting back on the meds while nursing but I feel like I'm not able to take advantage this time with my baby because of my anxiety. I spoke with his pediatrician and she said Zoloft is what they would advise for nursing moms but she can't give a blanket ok because they haven't done long term studies and the studies they've done are small. I just need any advise or information on this topic please.
