Abstract

A high prevalence of psychiatric illness has been noted in the postpartum period. Recent research looks to the potential effects of maternal illness during this period on child development. With the promotion of breast feeding for well-documented medical benefits, there has been increasing attention to the potential effects on the infant of exposure to medication via breast milk. This article reviews the current literature on the secretion of psychotropic medication into breast milk, and any known negative effects. Theshortcomings of these studies are highlighted, and recommendations to the clinician are given within the limitations of the current state of knowledge. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that depression will be 1 of the 2 major illness burdens confronting the world by 2020. The incidence of depression is 2-fold higher in women than in men, and the average ageat onset is 25 years. These facts combined with the noted risk of a markedincrease in psychiatric illness postpartum([1]) have serious implications. Depression occurring at this time can present with depressed mood, anxiety, and difficulties coping with the infant. Suicide, although not more common in depression, is at the severe end of the spectrum in those with puerperal psychosis and bipolar disorder. The morbidity associated with depressionis not confined to women suffering from it; there are also potential negative effects of maternal depression on child development, ([2]) on older children, and on the woman's partner. These effects include impaired bonding and cognitive and behavioral delays in the infant and difficulties in childhood. Moreover, the increased use of antidepressants in the Western world incombination with the strong promotion of breast feeding also has implications for the dependent infant. What do we know? And, what are the risks?.
