My son started taking Prozac for social anxiety 5 months ago. It worked tremendously. He is making friends, joined the track team. However, he became worry free, does not do his homework and assignments if he's not "in the mood" and doesn't care about the consequence. He spends most of his class time socializing and not paying attention. As a result, he's failing in most classes. Can prozac make you that "care free"? or does he need more time to adjust to his new "social skills" before he can balance school and fun?
I would talk with his doctor. If he/she says stay with the course, you can not just stand by and let him fail high school.
I would get him into martial arts, and there he can learn respect. Respect for family, teachers and himself. I have seen children who have social problems and go this direction. Once in Martial Arts his grades will start to go back up.
