See your doctor: All of the things you have mentioned except the goosebumps. The fatigue, nausea and poor appetite is noted for by antidepressants. The one she is on right now can be the cause of her symptoms. Even more important is the gooseflesh. This is usually with cold but can be with intense emotion. Child may need a child psychiatrist. See your pediatrician first.

See psychiatrist: Your daughter has been taking 3-4 drugs for sometime for her problem( depression) . All these medicines have side effects like nausea ,stomach pain and loss of appetite .Discuss the problem with psychiatrist,he may change the medicine or add another one to make the nausea go away ,so her appetite improves .Your daughter may do better on behavior therapy .
