I recently went in for my depression and they prescribed cymbalta. Should I stop nursing? I planned on nursing until she was six months she will be four months on January 2nd.

Yes and he advised I stop breastfeeding but Im not ready to do so. I will just hold off and deal with the depression until she is closer to 6 months. She is almost 4 months so another month wont kill me I just wish there were something okay to take. Thanks for the help with all my questions you guys have been amazing. I refer everyone to this site now :)
