Today my son was diagnosed with depression. His dad and grandpa are both on antidepressants so we know it is genetic. He is 12 and we have had type 1 for 2 and a half years. I am really scared to start this medication. On the paperwork it says DO NOT give this medication to children under the age of 18. Of course I have an appointment to talk with his endo tomorrow but always get way better advice here than anywhere else. Has anyone had experience with antidepressants and diabetes in a preteen? Thanks for your help! -Scared Momma
I will say his endo knows best! For me am 30 years and been taking Zoloft for the last 3 years with no side effects!
However I know they been talking about increasing emotions when taking it in preteen years. Again am not 100% sure, but his endo or a Physc knows best!
So glad you made an appointment to talk about your concerns. Hope you get the piece of mind you are looking for from the endo. I know that my brother was on antidepressants as a teenager and it really helped him. You are a great mom for taking his depression seriously and getting him the help he needs. I wish you the best!
