Our expert says:
I do hope you are being assessed and treated by a proper specialist psychiatrist, as such a case is best treated by the right specialist, rather than a GP. Within the first few days on a medication, it is hard to tell whether or not it is working, but if you are concerned that this one is not working for you, discuss this with the doc, as another drug might suit you better. If you have any concerns about harming yourself or the child seek URGENT help from a proper psychiatrist for an early assessment and the best available treatment, as this condition can respond very well to the right treatment, and you and your baby ( and family ) deserve only the best.
