Our expert says:
As is the case with your pregnancy, your doctors will also have to make the decision whether to continue or discontinue either nursing or escitalopram (the active of cipralex) therapy, taking into account both the risks of escitalopram exposure to the infant and the benefits of escitalopram therapy for the mother - I tend to think that in your case it probably does, but your Gynea and even Paediatrician will have to assist with making this decision.
Based on the results of a small study, Escitalopram appear to have a low potential for causing adverse effects in breastfed infants.
