Mary, did you talk to your doctor? Let us know what happens.
Also, I am wondering exactly how much you are lactating? Are you leaking a lot of milk, are you feeling let-downs, are you just able to express a few drops out or ??? Are you now lactating more than you did after the birth (more than you did at any point)?
Paxil, being an SSRI, is a prolactin stimulator.
This is true but as a breastfeeding counselor I have never heard of it stimulating production
. It's also not mentioned at all in any of my breastfeeding books or Medications and Mother's Milk. If it did I'd think women with low supply would be all over it!
Have you ever heard of it stimulating actual production, &/or do you know where I could read more about this?
Out of curiousity I did ask on a lactation list I'm on, we'll see if anyone there has any more knowledge on it.
