Fluoxetine in Pediatric Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Are you worried about the way any part(s) of your body (for example, your skin, hair, nose, eyes) look? Do you think about your appearance for more than one hour per day? Do these thoughts upset you? Do you have problems with your school, family, or friends because of your worries? Do you wish you could do something about this problem?
If you are a child or teenager (age 16 and younger) and answered "yes" to any of these questions, you might be eligible to participate in a study at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). If you qualify, you will receive a diagnosticevaluation and study medication. You will also be asked to fill out some questionnaires assessing body image symptoms, anxiety and mood. Participation in the study will be at no cost to you.
