A study denying to prescribe antidepressants to children has an allusion to the article, ‘Shut up and take your pills’. Both studies strictly deny the use of Prozac or Praxil for moderate-to-severe or psychotic depression. In the first place, child depression needs to be wisely tackled by parents via advice, spending more time with children, regulating diet, and controlling anxiety and methods of improving sleep. Secondly, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence confirms regulatory advice on antidepressants, which should be carefully considered for administering children if they do not recover from depression even after four to six sessions. But they suggest a change in the psychotic therapy instead of shifting the domain of treatment to antidepressants.
