I'm a 36 year old woman and breastfeeding my fourth child. I am aware that there are certain medications that should not be taken during lactation, and I avoid them at all costs. I have been introduced to many herbal remedies that are supposed to be excellent for depression and anxiety but most of them contain ginseng which I heard is not supposed to be used during breastfeeding, why not?
