Has anyone under the age of 14 years taken Zoloft for depression. How did it affect you?

"Do not give Zoloft to anyone younger than 18 years old without the advice of a doctor. Zoloft is FDA-approved for children with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is not approved for treating depression in children."

Hi Nana-
You should be concerned. There is a risk of suicidal ideation and thoughts with young people and antidepressants. I would get a second opinion on giving a child Zoloft. There may be safer ways of helping with the depression, like therapy. I would seek a Pediatric specialist.
