My daughter has crippling anxiety and obsessive thoughts (she's said at times she feels like her brain is torturing her). She "knows" her fears aren't based on reality but she can't stop worrying. She's taken Abilify in the past (for about 6 months in 2009) and says it was the best time of her life. But she gained almost 30 pounds. She's currently taking Lexapro but gets NO relief. What I've read about Prozac and Paxil look promising but I'm worried about her age.
Hello worried mom. She should be fine. Many teenagers take prozac and do well on the drug. If she were to begin on prozac, her doctor would be monitering her progress, and if she were to experience side effects on the negative side, could step in and take what action might be needed. Best of wishes,pledge
