I was diagnosed today with Postpartum Depression (PPD) and my OB perscribed me Prozac. Do I really need to take the medication to get better or can I make it through PPD without it? I have a 10 month old that I take care of and I do not want to be a "zombie" around him. Plus I can't afford to have the side effects because, unfortunately, I do not have any one to help me take care of my son. Is it a good idea to skip the meds or should I go ahead and take them?
