Can Fluoxetine Pass to Nursing Children through Breast Milk?

March 27, 2012

To the unfortunate surprise of many families, medical research shows that the active ingredients found in Prozac (fluoxetine) can pass to a newborn child through breast milk. The lack of general knowledge about the potentially harmful effects of Prozac is unsettling, particularly considering the variety of birth defects that scientific researchers have linked to popular antidepressants like Prozac.

 

Has your child suffered behavioral or physical development issues? If you took a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, you may have unintentionally exposed your child to dangerous chemicals. This isn’t necessarily your fault. Historically, pharmaceudical companies have done a poor job of communicating the full nature of the risks associate with their products.
