aparklewing; You don't say how long your daughter has been on the Prozac In most cases it takes up to 6 weeks to get the full benefit of this medication. And make sure she is getting it at about the same time each day. If she has been on it close to this amount of time you should check with the Doctor. Or even in doubt call the doctor and let him/her know that so far it is not helping her if she has been on it at least 4 to 6 weeks. Hope it kicks in soon I know it is not easy. Have a good evening.
