My 15 yo daughter has been reading up on depression, mood swings and angry outbursts and she feels she needs Prozac to feel better and cope with her big mood swings and stressful and busy days due to heavy homework loads, social pressures at her high school and dark thoughts.
I am very against any type of anti-depressant but then maybe she should see a good therapist to talk out her problems and maybe Prozac would help her cope better.
Any advice you have would be very helpful. I have read about the side effects and there are many. No one in our family has been on any type of anti-depressant before.
