I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy almost 6 weeks ago now. About 1 1/2 weeks ago, I told my doctor that I was suffering from post partum depression and anxiety (buckets of tears for no reason, loss of attachment, etc.). He prescribed me 20 mg. of Prozac, which I took for about a week. Since then, I have been unable to sleep at any time (day or night). Turns out, I'm allergic to SSRI's, so I stopped taking the Prozac after yesterday morning and took 5 mg of Ambien, so that I could at least get 5 solid hours of sleep last night (my husband took care of the baby). Has anyone else had this problem, how did it resolve and how long did it take?
