Can teens be prescribed medications for their depression?

Prescription Medications and Teenage Depression

Teenagers have become a large population of people who suffer from depression and treating each teen with prescription medication can be tough, especially when their bodies are going through changes. The chemicals and hormones constantly changing throughout the teenage years can make it difficult to find the right combination of medications, but once the correct chemical balance is found, the teen begins to feel like themselves again.

Prescription medications which are used for treating teenage depression have to be monitored. A therapist who specializes in teen depression is suggested when seeking an antidepressant. A teen's body chemistry is very different than an adult and needs to be considered and watched over when choosing a medication.
