    I just started this medicine last week. I have never been "on" anything besides daily multi-vitamins, Claritin, or birth control in my younger days. I'm 35 (today) and just had my 2nd child on 8-29. My doctor prescribed this because I am breastfeeding and it is supposed to be the safest for the baby.
