Well, my daughter was seen on tuesday because she gets exzcema on her forearms, behind her knees, and under her neck during the summertime. At this appointment her primary physician saw her for the first time in about a year. She is usually seen by his partner, which I actually like better anyways. Well, I think he realized how her alopecia has progressed and started asking about her personality. I said well, she's shy, has outburst when she gets into trouble, usually takes awhile to warm up to people, etc. I said there is a difference between her identical twin sister and that she is the less out going one. Well, he started bringing up the fact that sometimes this is stress related. He then brought up the idea that maybe we could start her on SSRI's or antideprressant/anxiety meds. I immediately declined saying that she is very loved, and has a wonderful life, etc. Well, her doctor said that he believes it, just that some people are born with less seratonin in their body. He thinks that with an SSRI her seratonin will improve and she will feel less stressed. I don't know what to do because I don't want to medicate my daughter, but maybe she really is struggling? I don't know. Has anyone tried this? He says sometimes the results are phenomenal.
