Is Pristiq currently being used to treat adolescents?

Its being used but its not recommended by the manufacturer. The incidence of suicidal ideation is higher in adolescents when they take anti depressants. Having been a depressed teenager, I would say not taking it is a worse choice. I would have been so happy if someone would have treated me.

Thank you Kaismama. The doctor is treating my son with Prozac, and it seems ok, but still doesn't seem like the optimum selection. I had heard great things about Pristiq from an adult.
