Doctor prescribes Prozac to help beat exam jitters

My son, whose school fees have landed us in a financial crisis, was prescribed Prozac by his boarding school GP. He is 18 and about to do his A levels in June. Your article on antidepressants (Q&A, WDDTY, vol 13 no 1) helped me convince him that there are other ways to cope with the stresses and strains of modern life and exams.


I wanted to expose this GP for what he has done, but I don’t wish to put my son under any more pressure than he is already going through.


Please publish this letter to warn other parents about irresponsible GPs prescribing Prozac to 18-year-olds about to take exams. – Name and address withheld by request
