My son was recently prescribed lexapro for his depression. I was not able to go to the appointment but dh was. The doctor gave him lexapro. Now i was reading that it is not for younger children. Does anyone else children take this also?

 My son takes a small dose of prozac and he will be 10 next month. I don't see that it really effects him much though.

Not familiar with lexapro.  Ask the pharmacist or doctor before giving it to your son.  My son will be 11 in may and is on zoloft for anxiety and depression.  Husband dont always ask the right questions!  They just go with what ever the doctor wants to prescrip.
