Aripiprazole and Breastfeeding

Aripiprazole seems to be being prescribed more frequently in pregnancy and therfore with newborns but it is becoming apparent from contacts that it can have a massive impact on breastfeeding. I may be seeing the unusual messages but it feels too much of a coincidence. I feel strongly that mums need to know how to watch for poor milk supply and understand the need to monitor their baby for milk intake if they are taking aripiprazole when breastfeeding.
