my 6 1/2 yo daughter has adhd with anxiety. She has a complete lack of impulse control. She worries about things she shouldn't and is intense all the time. I have tried yoga, breathing exercises, supplements, gaba, add-care, name it. we were just given prozac but we haven't started it yet. Looking for anyone who has had experience with this, good or bad.

Yes, this was what was recommended. Her doctor has been very good at not pushing meds on her but feels that we have done everything we can without meds. Because she also has adhd, the choices would be a stimulant or a non stimulant for the adhd or prozac or Zoloft for her anxiety. With her being so young, I am not quick to jump on any of them. But, I also feel I owe it to her to try and see if something does help her.
