Anyone else taking anti-depressants while nursing?

I have been battling with depression for a few months now, well I went to my midwife and insisted on prozac since I had taken it before I was preg (quit as soon as I found out I was expecting). Since starting this medication back, only 3-4 days, he has been fussy & irritable, and he typically isn't. SO I look online & see that maybe prozac isn't the best choice for nursing. Was curious if any of you took anything for depression *or took prozac. I need to be on something, and I was feeling better, but I don't want to hurt my baby. Any feedback would be appreciated!

My friend took Prozac through 3 pregnancies and 10-17 months of nursing each of the 3 kids. They are all fine. I do know that different people react differently to medications though. I tried Prozac once and was nauseous 24/7 on it.
