Hello everyone. I'm a stay at home mother of three children. Age 5, 3, and 1. I have had to take Zoloft antidepressant occassionally throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding at points with all three of my kids. I've currently been antidepressant free for about 6 months. About 75% of the time I feel great. I'm still breastfeeding my one year old so from experience with this sometimes I still just feel "bla" and lack of sexual interest but it is way better being off of zoloft. Lately though I'm EXTREMELY irritable and short tempered. Some days even feeling the blue's again and somewhat depressed with a touch of anxiety. I've really considered getting back on zoloft. My husband and I are considering having a 4th child. We're still very unsure but know that it could be a possibility. I'm concerned if I go back on the zoloft only to have to wean off of it if I decide to get pregnant or it just happens. I've weaned off of zoloft and am quite familiar with it but i've never done the weaning process during pregnancy. Of course my answer is to just try to stay off of it until a pregnancy occurs. That's obviously the best choice but we don't even know if that will happen at all. I'm just concerned about zoloft during pregnancy and if there would be concerns weaning off of it during early pregnancy. Because at this point I need to be the best mom I can be to the 3 that I have and I'm wondering if I need to get back on it. I'm new here so any thoughts would be welcomed! Thank you.
