Diabetes, depression and zoloft

Today my son was diagnosed with depression. His dad and grandpa are both on antidepressants so we know it is genetic. He is 12 and we have had type 1 for 2 and a half years. I am really scared to start this medication. On the paperwork it says DO NOT give this medication to children under the age of 18. Of course I have an appointment to talk with his endo tomorrow but always get way better advice here than anywhere else. Has anyone had experience with antidepressants and diabetes in a preteen? Thanks for your help! -Scared Momma

I will say his endo knows best! For me am 30 years and been taking Zoloft for the last 3 years with no side effects!

However I know they been talking about increasing emotions when taking it in preteen years. Again am not 100% sure, but his endo or a Physc knows best!
