My daughter was almost attacked by a bear but was able to get away. Before this incident she was diagnosed with selective mutism (not a severe case) but never had anything even close to depression. For 6 weeks she had nightmares, couldn't go to
school, cried constantly (literally), didn't eat, would
constantly tell me she wanted to sleep forever. It
was heartbreaking. After six weeks of this I broke
down and decided to let her try medicine. ( I have
had Severe Major Depression since I was 8 years
old that is well controlled with antidepressants) She
took Zoloft for 10 days which started helping her
mood, but she had horrible muscle pain, nausea
andinsomnia. Yesterday she started prozac and has
only taken one dose. She can't stop moving, is
constantly running and crying, jumping off the bed
recklessly which she never does, twitching and says she wants to sleep. Could ths happen after one dose? Anyone have any similar experiences? I'm waiting for her dr to call.
