Wondering if anybody knows of any research/collecting information about children who have breastfed while mothers were taking anti-psychotic and/or antidepressant medication. I took olanzapine and lexapro while breastfeeding and am curious on the effects on my (so far) well developing, smart, neuro-typical three year old daughter. Breastfeeding was such a priority for my husband and myself despite being sick with PP. My psychiatrist, my husband and I felt that we were comfortable with the unknown risk that the medications would pose on our daughter.
I'd love to be part of creating better access to care with more information and less guilt for future families having to make decisions about anti-psychotic and antidepressant medications in regards to breastfeeding. Anyone know of anyone studying this?
