I have been told by my primary physcian that because Im on Prozac my breast hurt, and have actually had like a lactating which surfaced, he said that being on antidepressants can send signals to your brain that your lactating. I did have a follow up mamogram and although there was a lump like whatever after the mammogram and a sonogram I assured that it wasnt cancerous and nothing to worry about. Problem still on Prozac and no relief in any of the symptoms in the breast and I have also gained a considerable amount of unexplained weight> i take 80mgs of Prozac and 20mg of Buspar daily
First of all I'm sorry to hear that you're having so many problems. I know that I've heard that anti depressants and anti anxiety medications can make you gain weight . This might sound crazy but this question popped into my head after I read how the medicines causing your body signs of lactating. Has anybody read anything anywhere where anti depressant causes your brain to think your body is pregnant. I warned you it was crazy but it's just a thought.. If the medicines can make your body lactate when you're not pregnant I wonder what else it can do. After years of suffering with lupus my brain definitely works differently.
