My 11 year old son has been diagnosed with depression about a month ago. It came as a complete shock to me and my husband.
He has always been an easy going boy, the peacemaker among his sibling and cousins, and a smart dedicated student.
I am at such a loss on how to help him, he is on Zoloft 50mg a day for over a month upped from 25mg combined with 1x week therapy session. We have seen no improvement, in fact i would say he is worse as he has now begun hitting himself.
I have scheduled follow up appointments with psychiatrist and psychologist. But to be honest I have never felt so lost.
Has anyone else experienced a similar thing?
