Hi Everyone

I was wondering if anyone has any advice about this? My little boy is already 13months old and I am still miserable and weepy a lot of the time. My doctor has put me on anti depressants. Could i have PND?

I though so, I should've listened to my gut. He put me on the meds about a week ago only, said it would take about a month to work. I am so disappointed in myself for not being able to do this.

By the way Shevi your kiddies are stunning!

You could still have pnd even though your baby is older.
I was put on medication when my son was 6 months old - I felt better after about 3 weeks not completely but the tablets give you the chance to see things more clearly and sort things out.
When I went to the doctor though - this is years ago mind you - he said I couldn't have pnd when my baby is so old.
This is not true - you can but you will get better - give the tablets a few weeks - if you fee no better after 4 weeks then go back to your doctor definitely.
Hope I have helped a bit
