Prozac

Prozac

My daughter is 11 and her SIB’s and maladaptive behaviors’ are increasing!! She is definitely going through puberty We are about to start a low dose of Prozac bc Medical Marijuana is not an option in my state which sucks because THC did amazing when tried once with an edible!! I would prefer this over any other prescribed drugs!! If it is legal in your state I highly recommend getting on it!! Please anyone give me feed back on Prozac!! She is also EXTREMELY OCD and SEVERE ANXIETY!! Thank-you

I also have OCD and anxiety. I was on Prozac for a long time when I was in high school. It took a few weeks to notice a difference, but it definitely worked really well for my OCD, and the anxiety that comes along with that

My daughter does amazing on prozac, it was a complete game changer for us. She went from extremely anxious, depressed, violent, self injurious, and suffering paranoid delusions of everyone trying to poison her, to being a generally well adjusted, sensory seeking child. She's 7 and has been on it over a year now. It took time to get the right dose figured out, but once we did it made a drastic difference.

I live in Massachusetts where marijuana is legal for recreational use. I couldn't find anywhere that is was legal to give THC to someone under age 21. CBD oil may be legal for medical reasons but I'd question giving a kid THC. I bought legal marijuana and it says not for children on it.
