My DD (17 years old) has suffered from what seems to be anxiety for about 2 years. I took her to a urgent care center today because of chest pain, shortness of breath, and rapid heart beat. She has had these symptoms before, but they seem to be getting more frequent.
Anyway, they gave her Lexapro
, a drug for treating anxiety and depression. Does anyone have any info, or experience with this drug? I'm very hesitant giving the kids any medications and have heard some bad things about antidepressants.
Any help or info you can give will be appreciated.
