Hello everyone. I'm 14 years old and suffering from severe anxiety (I'm a school refuser because of it) and depression (i think this is caused by how debilitating my anxiety is). I also get very stressed, tense and invasive/dark scary thoughts, and awful PMT. My depression and anxiety get so much worse before my period. I was prescribed Prozac a couple of months ago, but I gave up on it (i thought it made me worse, but I'm not sure whether i just convinved myself of that). Anyway, my counselor has suggested going on sertraline and I'm just a bit worried because of my age. I know it doesn't happen to everyone, but I've read that antideppressants make suicidal thoughts a lot worse in teenagers- are there any fellow teens (or anyone) out there who's anxiety/depression has been helped by sertraline? I'm really fed of up of feeling like this and I want to feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel! I'd be really grateful for any replies!!
