I was called to school because she was having suicidal thoughts and was very sad. We took her to the er where we were given a case worker who got us into an out patient all day program. She started two days ago. Today she saw the doctor who wants to put her on zofoft and a sleepade. She does not sleep is depressed has been having suicidal thoughts for almost a year she also cuts herself and throws up on purpose she also has almost no self esteem most of these problems started within the last few months. I am all for the out patient program that also keeps up on her school work but i'm not sure about the zoloft i have heard so many negative things about anti depressants that i don't know what to do.
