Does Anyone Know of a Safe Drug to Take for Depression While You Are Breastfeeding?

Question by : Does anyone know of a safe drug to take for depression while you are Breastfeeding?
I am concerned as My doctor prescribed me Prozac as he stated it does not go into breast milk but the information the pharmacist gave states that it does. I don’t want to harm my baby. Are there any suggestions on non-drug remedies. Thanks!

Prozac is excreted into breast milk this can cause toxic effects on newborn such as vomiting, watery stool, irritability and decreased sleep.

There are unknown long-term effects on neurobehavior or development of infants exposed to drug
