hi, im new on here, and looking for help,
weeks ago my daughter had a very nasty stomach virus that lasted 4 weeks, it left her crying, shaking, anxious ect.
so on Monday i took her to the GP who diagnosed depression and gave her 20 mg prozac a day. today is day 6. she is managing to be back at work, but only just, she hasnt slept properly since being on the tablets, and is exsisting on only a few hours sleep a night, she has also had an episode where she has "seen" things. she looking in the mirror and saw smoke all a round, she blinked, and it had gone. are these normal side effects? i hate the idea that she is just putting strong chemicals in her body, and the side effects are not normal.
she also feels like her whole body is shaking, but on the PLUS side, she didnt cry yesterday, which is a huge acheivement, we take it hour by hour, it just feels such a lonely place to be, when she was such a bubbly, happy teenager.
