I'm not giving Prozac a bad name as I wouldn't about any AD - IF it works for you. But there are some precautions. I just watched Montel Williams today and the discussion was about kids on ADs.

He had a guest on the show that wrote a book, "Prozac Backlash" and has a website at

It was a very interesting show as it brought about the side effects of ADs prescribed to kids and the docs that aren't knowledgeable about the effects. The docs go by what the pharmaceutical companies tell them.

Here's a quote from the website:

A strong patient advocate, Dr. Glenmullen tesitfied at the FDA hearing that resulted in the recent warning that antidepressants make patients, including children and adolescents, suicidal. The warning covers all ten of the currently popular antidepressants: Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Effexor, Celexa, Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Luvox, Remeron, and Serzone.

This doesn't say that ADs are bad, but you need to do your research and talk with your doctor - what is his/her experience/knowledge of the drug he's prescribing. It's sad to hear of suicides of ppl that are on ADs when the ultimate goal is to HELP the patient from their depression.

Ok, I'm done babbling now.


Good luck and congrats to all that are on this board.
