my psyc just switched me to welbutrin in the am and paxil in the evening. he says to try and not feed my daughter, 7 months old, for 4 hours after i take each medication. im wondering if anyone has more information on this. i tried calling a nurse line & a pediatricians office but im getting the run around & it is really hard for my daughter to get used to her 'new' wating schedual. it is very important to me to continue breastfeeding until she reaches 1yr. bottles are not an option. any advice or knowledge would be great!!!

Call or check out the InfantRisk Center at http://infantrisk.org . The phone number is 806-352-2519. They will be the most knowledge experts to ask. I've sometimes asked 2-3 people about medicine safetly and I'll get 2-3 different answers. Hope that helps.

Hope you are feeling better soon!
