Dear Dr Jackson, You must be feeling vindicated with the award to Arkansas State of 1.1 billion dollars. Right now, here in Australia, where in spite of all the bad publicity, Risperidone is still recommended, Drs are giving it to my daughter again. 4 years ago it nearly killed her! It seems they can do what they like and even the Minister for Mental Health claims to have no jurisdiction. Thank you for making public and continuing Dr Breggin's pioneering work on the dangers of these toxic drugs. Mary Connor

[...] I’ve spent a fair amount of time over the past few weeks researching antidepressants and breastfeeding, focused on Zoloft and Paxil, which Zachary Stowe has written about extensively, which Thomas Hale has quoted. I sent a summary of my early findings to a reporter, and after I get it all better organized I am going to update the momsandmeds site / BREATH blog with new info. But any mom who is researching this should know that her doctor likely does not have the first clue about the reports of somnolence & sedation/ SIDS / seizures / epilepsy / developmental delay, hypoglycemia etc. that are being submitted to MedWatch. In fact I just realized I don’t think I ever made a MedWatch report. Here are some of my initial findings on a search of MedWatch data:https://momsandmeds.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/breastmilkexposure/ [...]

Hey, I am exclusively breastfeeding and my little son is 8 weeks old today. I have just been prescribed Lexapro 10mg today. I took half of one tonight. I'm terrified of SIDS, naturally. Do you think my baby is at risk of SIDS now that I'm taking Lexapro? :(

Charlees Story My name is Tanya Austin and I am searching to see what we can do, if anything in regards to being advised to stay on effexor and yet it has caused some problems for our baby. In Australia where we live there doesnt seem to be really anywhere to turn. When we became pregnant I was taking 150mg of Effexor for depression and anxiety. Our due date was 19/12/2010. This was my 5th child. Our other children are Christopher 23 years, Casey-Lee 20 years, Ben 18 years and Nickieta 16 years. They where all very excited for us to be having a baby and especially when we found out she is a little girl. We had asked two Gps and the obstetrician was also aware of being on the Effexor plus the registrar at the mothers hospital prenatal appointments, plus 3 different midwives, plus a RN that works at the medical practice where my daughter works. My Mum had also asked her GP. I also have high blood pressure and was also on Olymetec, which my GP had immediately had taken me off these as they carry a rating of D in the affects on the baby while pregnant. I was not taken off the Effexor just told that it would be ok by all these medical professionals or told there was not enough information about them as they are new or they didn’t say anything when I asked about the Effexor having an effect. In a nutshell we where told, best to stay on them. The chances of any effect was rare. I was also encouraged to breast feed in my prenatal appointments, I had to explain more then once why we had chosen not to breast feed as the effexor can be in the breast milk and we had contacted the company and they themselves said it is advised not to breast feed. With this medication, people cant just instantly stop taking them, they have to be weaned off them, if I could just cut them off that very day then I surely would of did this. We where not given the reduced dose to start weaning by the doctors. My husband and I though had decided that we would wean myself off these effexor tables, so we started taking the capsule tablet apart and taking out the little beads of the Effexor. My gut instinct was just not comfortable in taking the Effexor while I was carrying Charlee. I also researched on the internet and had read some sad stories about the effects of effexor when babies are born. At first we started taking the beads out at 5 beads and then increased to 70 beads in the 3rd trimester. On November 25 2010 I went into labour and Charlee our little girl was born, she was born at 36 weeks and 4 days. My other 4 children where all 1 week overdue, so to have Charlee premature was totally different. I was not on Effexor with my other children. We named her Charlee Elly Marie Austin as my husbands name is Charles, his middle name is Elliott and Marie is the middle name of our youngest daughter Nickieta and she asked if we could use her middle name for Charlees middle name, so we did. When Charlee was born she was forgetting to breath on her own, so she was given oxygen. We then where taken up to the ward. The nurse gave Charlee a bottle during the early morning hours as I had a catheter in place and couldn’t really attend to Charlee. Charlee had not really been taking the bottle very well during that day and had sicked a lot in her cot. She didn’t maintain her temperature and was placed under the cot heaters. Charlees blood sugar levels where very low. She kept forgetting to breath. She developed jaundice and was placed on the billy blanket, phototherapy for jaundice when the levels in the blood are to high. She has rapid breathing while asleep and awake. She also had tremors. She was also turning blue and not catching her breath and gagging a lot. I ha[...]

Comment on How long did it take you withdraw from Paxil? by Kevin

Fri, 04 Jun 2010 23:11:39 +0000

Hey Madnap, I thought you might be interested in this video. The song is about how often we are just going through the motions in our lives and not truly living - it's based on me finally getting off Paxil. Anyway, I thought you and your members may find some inspiration in it. The song is called “Wake Me Alive” - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhBzxLPT0Uo PS It took me about 2 months to ween myself from Paxil (which was accompanied by dizziness and headaches).

My name is Renee Sailors. I am pssionate about these anti-depressants being given out to so many women in our country. They have been given to me like candy for my anxiety, however, I keep refusing to take them. My sister takes Lexapro and lives with me, and I witness first hand how WE suffer if she misses a dose, even within a couple of hours. Before she went on them, she NEVER had rageful moments, etc. I am angry at our country's lack of knowledge for women's health and the complex hormonal devastating stages a women can suffer through, and most of the doctors do not even check our hormones before giving out psychotropic medicine that can change our brain chemistry. We need to start running and working out hard! In the meantime, please keep up your passion and good work. I am remaining hopeful that my anxiety will continue to decrease, once I am out of my current situation. Please call me if you ever need a volunteer for something I may be able to do for you. Until then, God Bless! My e-mail is drlsailors@aol.com, and my number is 214-962-0170.
