Default Is Zoloft suitable for children?

Hi,

Does anyone know if Zoloft is prescribed for children? If not, what is a good alternative drug that would be used to treat obsessive compulsive behaviors for a teenager?

A friend of mine has a 4 year old boy that is being treated for OCD with Zoloft. He was originally taking Prozac but it didn't seem like it was working well enough. So the doctor switched him to Zoloft a few weeks ago. I'm not sure if it is working or not.

Zoloft has been used in the treatment of both adults and children. Like all other medications, its effectiveness can very from one individual to another. As far as a better medication or more effective medication for teens, I would suggest you consult a doctor or therapist.

Do not give Zoloft to anyone younger than 18 years old without the advice of a doctor. Zoloft is FDA-approved for children with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It is not approved for treating depression children.
