My DD1 is 16, 17 next month. She's is a very sociable young girl and is popular amongst her friends. She is currently suffering from bulimia nervosa and is on Prozac for that and depression. You could never tell though, she is always out with friends, drinking with them etc. However I've always noticed she isn't the most stress free person but nothing more than a regular person but yesterday she seemed to be acting a bit weird. We called to her grans house and then when we came home we had been locked out as DD2 19 accidentally went out with the key not knowing we didn't have one. I went round to my sisters house (DD's aunt) until DD2 got home. I told her to come round here and wait but she insisted on sitting on the bench outside our house waiting. She was there for half an hour and was getting really angry with the situation. She rand DD2 20 times and left an abusive message calling her a name and telling her to get home. She also tried to contact DD2's boyfriend to see where they were. Neither picked up. She was getting really angry which I could see, she was tearing up and pulling on her hair also scratching her forehead pretty hard with her fingernails. Is this weird or am I overthinking it?

How long been on the Prozac?

Has she been taking the Prozac properly and not skipped it for a while, it can cause problems coming off it suddenly

Has been on Prozac approximately 3 months, she has usually been good at keeping up with medications when she has it so I've never worried about her taking it properly. She is currently on 20mg

Have you had a chat with her about it ?

Yeah she just said "I don't know what you're talking about I was pissed off that she wasn't home" but surely that doesn't excuse the abusive messages to DD2 and the hair pulling etc

I don't know if it's a deserved reputation that people think Prozac can be dodgy, but I think I would talk to whoever prescribed the Prozac about that behaviour. It's weird behaviour ime (2 moody teens at home for comparison).

Did you say that the behaviour was excessive for what had happened ? She's minimising her reaction

Yes at 3 months the Prozac should be working and in her system, perhaps go back to the Gp ?
