Anxiety board


My 10 year old daughter was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Seperation Anxiety Disorder 3 years ago. She did she a pshycologist for therapy for several months, she did improve with therapy. She was evaluated for medicine by a pysciatrist which he did not think medicine was good idea then.

Three years later its the worst. This morning she said she "hates her life". I have never heard her say that before. She has been seeing a therapist for 3 weeks which has not seemed to help very much. She saw a child psyciatrist this morning and he prescribed Zoloft and Trazodone (for sleep). He was concerned about depression also. He said another alternative was Prozac. Prozac would be cheaper but my husband takes Zoloft so I am more familiar with Zoloft. Obviously the Dr thought Zoloft would be better.

Her anxiety is disrupting everything. I feel so bad for her. I feel like I can no longer help her. :confused:

What is everyone's thoughts on the medication and her disorder? Any support and advice would be much appreciated.
