Hi Link

Treating depressed children with SSRIs and Effexor is not actually 'banned' in the UK. Doctors can still legally prescribe all SSRIs and Effexor to children. The government has advised doctors not to prescribe SSRIs (except fluoxetine) to depressed children however. Some SSRIs are approved for the treatment of childhood OCD in the UK, but none are approved for depression. Fluoxetine is approved for childhood depression in some countries.

You may be interested to hear that the offical UK data sheet for sertraline (Lustral, Zoloft) states.....

'There is limited knowledge with respect to an effect on sexual development in children.'

Kind regards
