... She's very anxious tonight, I see a panic attack coming tomorrow. Will taking Prozac or Xanax help prevent it tomorrow? Will she be too tired in school?
Hello KellyCline and welcome to DC. Do you know why your daughter is so upset today? It is hard to know what will work for your daughter and also to know how she will physically react to it the next day.
I would be talking with her doctor to get the exact info regarding any likely reactions or adverse side-effects.
Dear Kelly - Your daughter is so young to need such meds. You are a GREAT mom recognizing behavior that may lead to an attack. Has she taken Xanax tonight?? If not, then maybe her regular dose might help with this anxious feeling. Taking Xanax tonight should not make her too tired or sleepy tomorrow as it is fast acting and effects would be gone by then. I would speak to her doctor about preventing attacks as preventing them is much easier than treating one. Just a suggestion... I use Xanax and find that a regular dose helps me much more than waiting for anxiety to get out of control. Good Luck = you are an amazing Mother!!!
