Mirtazapine (15mg) for postpartum depression (PPD)

I have been taking mirtazapine for 6 weeks, in combination with lamotrigine and lorazepam and I've put on 7 kgs so far. I'm finding it easier to fall asleep but waking up again in the morning is difficult. It really helps for the depression but doesn't do anything for the anxiety. No desire for any kind of physical contact whatsoever any more.

Citalopram (20mg) for postpartum depression (PPD)

The first 10 days I suffered from side effects. Those days I really had to get through. For this I used Lorazepan. After 14 days I noticed the first positive effect and after 3 weeks I really snapped up. I use this medium now for 8 weeks and have more good than bad days. I am very happy about it.

Venlafaxine (75mg) for postpartum depression (PPD)

Have used Venlafaxine for 18 years. I take 75 mg twice a day and have had no heavy depressions. Before I started using Venlafaxine I had 3 depressions, the first was Post Natal. I have to say Venlafaxine has saved my life.

Citalopram (10mg) for postpartum depression (PPD)

Given these because of suspicion of post natal depression. But my mirena coil seems to have been the bad guy! Once the mirena was out my problems came back worse. Seemed that I didn't need the citaolopram any more because they were giving me the exact kind of problems that I was supposedly taking them for. Within a week of stopping taking citalopram, my depression was gone.

Paroxetine (10mg) for postpartum depression (PPD)

I had postnatal depression after the birth of my son. Really down, no enjoyment in anything any more, under a black cloud instead of over the moon, anxious, not allowed to be on my own and afraid to go outside. The psychotherapist wrote me a prescription for paroxetine with oxazepam as an extra support for the first weeks. It definitely took about 6 months before my anxiety lessened. Since then...
