My youngest was diagonis with Post Partum Stress Disorder, and was prescribe Prozac, Now, I myself am not a fan of Drugs, I don't believe that drugs should of been the answer to her problem, I felt that she needed more therapy,but this Dr. just prescribe her Prozac. After maybe a week, I'm guessing, because her Father took her in to see the Dr. Im not condemning that he's trying to help her, Im just worry that the problem being resolve by a pill, and not by life it self. My daughter is 8 years old, she basically lives in two separate world, One poor and One rich. When she's with me, she's poor, When she's with her dad she's rich, So I think she has to behave a certain way when she is with him. I know he's doing this to gain custody, Every issues he brought up, I've resolved. I even had protective service called on me for not having heat, It wasn't even that cold out yet, and I had plan to get propane the next month, but because he didnt want to wait, I had to borrow the money from my mom. Which okay I'm not bitching about, but to called the state, who by the way, called me up didn't come to my house, and asked when I would get it, I said I had plan next month, but not knowing how the state would response, I went into tears, and beg my mom to help me. Then he complain that the cat spray, okay Yes, I have cats, and I'm sorry that they spray, but I went into cleaning mode, and even asked the bus driver who is a good friend everyday okay is she smelling okay, if you have cats sometime your used to the smell, and I'm greatful that someone mention it to me. I resolve all these issues, I've focus hard on making him happy, but regardless, of what i do. he's makes me out to be the bad mother. My daughter cried when she had to go with him, but thats not because she didn't want to go, she just didn't want to leave so soon, she wanted more time with me. I don't see the harm in having your child, missing you, in tears. She was just upset that she couldn't stay thats all. My daughter also has an issues at home with her seeing ghost, she at time refused to sleep in her room and I brought this up to her dad, I have no clue how to deal with it but to tell her that if she see a shadow make sure its not her dresser, or something reflexing off the wall. Does anyone have children who say they see ghost? I'm curious on this? Also, Does anyone have children who takes Prozac, and whats your opinion on it? Thank You.

Yeah, I talk to a friend who 16 year old daughter is on Prozac, but her dr didn't even start her off on Prozac. I have no clue when my own child even started going to a therapist. I just now found this out, a day ago. So, Im guessing not that long. I know her dad see her with emotional issues, but I just don't think that putting her on Prozac, or any other drugs for that matter would of solve her problem. She's a quiet shy little girl. Let her be who she is. A well behave child, who yes at time crys when she messes me, but that doesn't mean she needs drugs, she needs tlc. Or am I wrong?

No, but it seems so young! I don't think I've heard of a child so young taking Prozac (except maybe an autistic child). The Prozac could be making her hallucinate. Was she saying this before being on it? Prozac has many side effects. I hope the doctor went over them with you.....
