Discussions that mention prozac

Family & Friends of the Mentally Ill board

wow, thanks for all the information and I will keep posting, sounds like I should look into another medication, A child psychiatrist told me she should try prozac. What are your thoughts? thanks to all
She may need Prozac, but NOT without a mood stabilizer of some sort! Prozac is also an anti-depressant belonging to the SSRI group. You were wise to give her Risperdal- who suggested that? Risperdal is an atypical anti-psychotic, and this is the other type of meds for bipolar. Mood stabilizers like Lithium and Depakote are the most common, though. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask! :angel:
