Discussions that mention prozac

Family & Friends of the Mentally Ill board

My daughter had some mild OCD symptoms that started when she was in high school. They became worse her senior year in college....taking exams, getting her certifications, job searches, etc. She was dealing with a lot of life transitions and stress. I am not an expert, but I think OCD is an anxiety response. She had some therapy and takes prozac. She still gets a little symptomatic the week of her period, but she has learned how to deal with it. She is successful in her job and personal relationships. And, is a very happy young woman. I really think that in the long term, with the proper intervention, your daughter will be just fine. This really doesn't sound schizophrenic to me, but as I said, I am not a professional. OCD is very treatable. One other thing I will mention is that birth control pills made her symptoms worse, as well.
