[AlternativeAnswers] Re: Child with anxiety

 

I too have a young child that suffers from anxiety and depression. She did take prozac/paxil and seroquel for sleep. Even though these are tough medications, they were very helpful. She took them for about 6 months and got "stable" then stopped them. Her depression and anxiety was manageable without meds. She worked hard to become aware of triggers and to control her response.

St John's Wort was used at times as well as melatonin for sleep. There were some side effects with the melatonin and the St. John's Wort and they were stopped too.

Sometimes it helps to use pharmacology as a tool to stabilize and then, going natural is much easier. Each child is different and needs different combination of meds and vitamins/herbs. Leave no stone unturned and do what you feel comfortable with.

Wishing you and your child wellness.
