My son's Doctor prescribed for him, Prozac (1 tsp/night) to make him tired and sleep through the night (sleep disorder). It would also calm him during the day. What do you know about giving a 5 year old Prozac?
My son is 19 years old. He has been diagnosed with Asperger's and Social Anxiety Disorder. From your personal experience, what medications worked the best? I was thinking maybe Xanax for anxiety and maybe Prozac?
Would anyone be willing to share their experiences with using prozac for anxiety with their autistic child. My son is 9 and moderately functional, verbal, but has a great deal of anxiety about going to school. Or separating from us (his parents) for activities.
My 8 year old, who has beend diagnosed with PDD-NOW, is on Prozac for anxiety. She started on the lowest dose a month ago. We noticed no change in her behavior, except that she was more irritable.

My 13 year old has PDD,nos. He was put on Prozac (generic) about 2 months ago. He has been taking it for anxiety which has cleared up. In the meantime he is regressing in other ways. He fights everything we ask, becoming more disrespectful, more childish, very hyper especially at night. He seems to be getting worst and worst where we don't even want to be with him because we don't know what to expect. Has anyone else experienced this with their child? Help! I honestly don't know what to do… read more
Anyone’s kids have trouble with increasing frequency and trouble emptying bladder on Prozac. The med has made my kid less irritated but the need to go to the bathroom every 10 min and leaking afterwards isn’t worth it I don’t think. He’s never had urinary issues before. It’s listed as a side effect but the docs say it’s probably constipation ( but his not). Anyone have thoughts advice?
Now that my son has started Preschool. Im now at a place of what should I do next. My gut tells me to find him a Speech therapist and O/T. Bc he was doing so good with EI services he got(1hr a wk). Even though his school does provide him with S/T n O/T but for couple of minutes since its only 2.5 hrs.
