Have no direct experience but know some kids who used it, because of difficulty swallowing pills. For one of them, prozac was not the doc's first choice but she has such difficutly swallowing pills, it was the liquid prozac they went with, at least until the kid developed an awful rash. At that point, she had to get special hypnotherapy to overcome her problem with swallowing so she could take a different med. I would imagine it might make it easier to start gradually with the liquid form. You can do it with the capsule, but it is harder. You "dissolve" the powder in water and divide the "solution" into smaller doses. I use the term "dissolve" tentitavely, because I found that the powder doesn't truly dissolve, it sort of suspends. You can distribute it fairly evenly by shaking the mixture up. I would imaging the liquid form is easier. But I also think that if you have managed care coverage for your prescriptions, they might give you some annoyance about the liquid form, and you might have to get your doc to be assertive.
