Definitely ur obstetric and pediatric drs have discussed this with you .this are antidepressant and antipsychotics  ,which can pass thru the breast milk but in very small amount .if the baby is well ,not preterm ,then ,benefits of breast feedings definitely  outweigh the marginal risks with this medicines being present in the breast milk. Lactogen is not being tolerated by your baby, plz continue breast milk as babys food totally comes from it ,isn't it .
