I assume you are talking about postnatal depression? If yes, you might want to talk to your doctor about different treatment options as it seems that Eglonyl is not the best solution in most cases.

"Eglonyl (sulpiride) is an antipsychotic that increases milk supply and causes drowsiness as side effects. It is not effective as an antidepressant on its own. Though it is often prescribed for postnatal depression, other more effective treatment options exist. We do not recommend Eglonyl as stand alone treatment for postnatal depression."
