Post Natal Depression was created by Tazzy
My baby is almost 6 months already and today and finally went and saw my gynae to discuss my situation.
I have been on the edge for a while now and find it difficult to control my emotions. I cry a lot, sometimes for no apparent reason. I am short tempered with both my kids and husband.
My dr has given me Cipralex to take. Are there any bad side effects that I should look out for? Im not one for taking medication, so im a little freaked out.

Hi Tazzy

Unfortunately I'm not a medication expert, so I'm guessing your doctor would be better suited to discuss your fears.

I am slightly concerned about the number of moms reporting post-natal depression, and I reckon it would be a great idea for you ladies to get together and form a support group if at all possible. If you are keen on this, I'll be happy to provide some tips and guidelines.

I will start a thread today :) would be lovely to chat to other ladies in the same boat!

Nbush - are you on any meds yet? I've been on meds for 3 months and its made a huge difference. How old is your baby? Is it your first little one?
