  • Depression

    My DD, age 10, has been working with a therapist for several years and was diagnosed with depression this week. She gets into these moods where she thinks everyone hates her and can't be convinced otherwise. The T recommended that she try antidepressants so we are in the process of getting a prescription.

    Meanwhile, I too have been in therapy for several years and just started an antidepressant (generic Effexor) today.

    Thanks in advance for praying.

      seems like 10 years old is a bit young to be put on antidepressants or any psychoactive drugs. Get another opinion.

          3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

            Ditto that. There have been too many cases where teens and pre-teens were put on anti-depressants and it caused them to commit suicide, or attempt to. Seems it has the reverse effect of what was intended in brains before a certain level of development.

            I hope you find a solution that works. I'm praying.
            Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.
