Breastfeeding Baby on Drugs, are Psych Med Safe? Moms on Meds, Amy Philo & John Breeding
Breastfeeding is the healthiest option for mom and baby in most cases. It provides all of the nutrients that babies need and also helps stabilize a mother's hormone levels and can even assist in weight loss.
But is it really safe to take psychiatric drugs while pregnant or breastfeeding? In this video, Amy Philo and Dr. John Breeding discuss this issue and tell you why it is NOT safe to take these drugs while breastfeeding.
Amy was taking Zoloft while breastfeeding her first child, and her baby became so sedated within 10 days of birth that they were rushed to hospital. Effexor has some of the worst effects, because of its high concentration in breast milk. Babies influenced by Effexor may have a hard time breathing and digesting foods.
