  1. Hi Kimberly,

    Your blog is so cute and poignant. I can’t believe I haven’t checked it out sooner. I’d love to be listed on your blogroll, or write an article on rebuilding health after PMADs.

    Check me out! I’ll be in touch next week.

    Keep up the great work.

  2. Great and informative blog you have here! You provide several resources dedicated to parenting/ppd/depression. Thank you for providing a great service here 🙂

    Recently and as you know, drugs to treat new mothers suffering from Postpartum Depression such as Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac can have potentially harmful side effects. Depression can also be the result of taking certain medications during or post pregnancy in women. An example of this is the drug, Accutane, which is used to treat Acne. Current or recent users have been known to exhibit severe depression leading to Post Partum Depression, that can ultimately lead to suicide as well as other side-effects such as birth defects, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Collities. By raising awareness, we can make sure people have the knowledge they need to not develop unwarranted and wrongful symptoms.

    Drugwatch is dedicated is to provide people with an un-biased comprehensive list of medications and associated side effects to help consumers make educated decisions when it comes to taking potentially harmful medications.
