Is prozac safe for an 11 year old?

My best friends recently took her 11 year old boy who have had some mental problem after taking him to a psyciatrist, he was finally diagnosed with social anxiety as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. The doctor prescribed prozac to alleviate the symptoms. I've never personally been in favor of medicating children this young. So, my question, from people's experience, is this drug safe for an 11 year old boy? Will they be on it for the rest of their life, since from what I've read once you start, it is difficult to drop the medication? Appreciate any advise people might have on this matter.
