Thank you for your helpful reply. It's good to hear about others' experiences with this. You make some interesting points about shyness,anxiety, and depression that I had not thought about before. I am glad that you found something that worked for you. I am going to bring this up with my daughter's doctor during her next visit. I've heard other good things about Zoloft in the past and maybe it is time to give it (or something like it) a try. I'd be interested to know if there are any side effects. One in particular .... weight gain........ is something I have to watch for. My daughter is not overweight at this time, but ds individuals can lean toward putting on extra weight.
Thanks again. Karyn
