You definitely need to tell your doctor you stopped taking the meds, but be honest that they weren't helping. I had severe post pardem and didn't seek treatment until I was suicidal! It was scary, but there are so many different treatment options, including herbal supplements. Good luck and find someone to vent to! :)

i am on anti depressants and they are helping i can tell when i don't take them, so yes i think you should talk to your dr they might have something else for you

HI,

I suffered severe post natal depression with my first child. The only advice i can give you is to talk about how you feel, dont suffer alone. In general antidepressents do take 4-6 weeks to set in, but you do need to take everyone. I hope this helps.
