I was on medication before I had my baby. I quit taking it all when I found out I was pregnant. I have been off of my medication for well over a year now because I am breastfeeding. The time has come for me to make a choice. Do I continue breastfeeding while on this medication or do I wean? The medication is Topamax. Dr. Hale's website says that it appears to be relatively safe for breastfeeding mothers. However, baby's ped says that it can cause nerve damage and Tourettes (sp). The only reason I am questioning the ped is because he also told me that the only women who get Post Partum Depression are women who are Bi-polar. My baby is almost 8 months old and weighs 21 pounds. Please help me decide. I have reached a point where I am no longer able to function as a wife and mother without it. TIA.
