... couple weeks ago but i still haven't started it. I am nervous to start meds like this. I am a year postpartum and still breastfeeding. I was told it could help with my anxiety. I just don't know how to talk myself into taking it. My psychiatrist prescribed it. I'm nervous of the side effects and nervous of it will hurt my one year old who is still breastfeeding. Can anyone relate and help me? Thank you!
I was prescribed Remeron 15mg (told I can cut in half) and to take before bed. I was given this a?

Patients should be advised to notify their physician if they are breastfeeding an infant.)))) This information all comes right off of this site drugs.com so please talk with the doctor again.
Maybe call your child's Pediatric doctor and or your general doctor and ask about taking Remeron while breastfeeding. Remeron has it's pros and cons for some people. It is known for carb cravings, weight gain and sleepiness, hence to be taken at night. It does work well for some.
