Ask A Doctor Question:
I am having a few problems. I had a son about 9 mon. ago and was diagnosed with postpartum depression. My doc put me on zoloft and then serezone. After about 6 mon I stopped taking the meds b/c I was upset that meds were the only solution my doc offered. I have been doing ok but have occasional lapses that can last 1-4 days. I am thinking its anxiety bc I usually lapse when I worry. I don't know. So, when I am thinking about christmas (when my son was born) I am a little apprehensive about how I will feel this year. Should I find another phychiatrist or phsycologist? Which? Will anyone be able to help me without the use of drugs? I would like to have more children someday. - c
