Just about to start taking sertaline for pnd but wanted to know if there is a good time of day to take it so the amount transferred to milk is low, think it's at it highest after 6 hours so not sure if I took at night if it would just accumulate (dd sleeps for 8 hours) as this is my best milk

Hi Wizard - I'm sure you're sorted now, but I had more than enough trouble just remembering to take it, let alone remember a certain time of day! Fwiw I noticed no change to baby when I started taking, nor when I stopped 6 months later

Not sure how helpful I will be, but my GP put me on paroxetine when I had PND as it is ok to take while breastfeeding.

It's worth reading the drug info leaflet.
