Hi, can anyone weigh in on their decision to start medication for their child? We have finally seen a psychiatrist and an SSRI (Zoloft) was recommended for my 11-year-old. Irritability and frustration are a challenge for him daily, but we've made it this long without medications.. and I am very afraid of the potential side effects (reading a lot of negative info online). Then again, it seems it could be a big help to him, and he certainly doesn't want to be melting down so often.. but is it worth the risk? How did you decide? thank you!
