I'm 16 years old and I have OCD and MDD. I also take Lorazepam and Prozac (fluoxetine). I can't go to school, because of anxiety. What should I do?
Your psychiatrist & your parents are responsible for providing information to your school to determine if you are eligible for home-bound educational services & to develop a plan to transition you back to the classroom. Along with medications, you need regular, long-term therapy to address your anxiety, depression & school phobia. .
THERAPY. I would highly recommend a psychiatrist and a therapist to help you improve and work with you and school.
If I can't go to school, is this because obsessive-compulsive disorder and major depressive disorder? I also take Prozac (fluoxetine) and Lorazepam.
Talk w/ your folk. From your words, I can't tell if you feel too awful to go or if you are not allowed to go. And I don't know the local laws about attendance. But whatever it is that you want to understand better, talk w/ your guardian/parent - then w/ the doctor treating you and the school administration. If you want an education - I'm proud of you and hope you get help for it. Best wishes! Read more...
