Anthony Bray MD :

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

Yes it would seem that your BMI would be about 22 or 23 range and that would be OK....

Anthony Bray MD :

How much weight did you lose and over what time period??

Anthony Bray MD :

I would advise that you discuss this further with your doctor or seeka second opinion possibly....

Anthony Bray MD :

Another optrion that might be considered would be alternative medications for ADD... Stattera for example would tend to place less concern (but not zero) on the weight loss issue...

Anthony Bray MD :

I think that your doctor is simply trying to be careful for your sake and does not want to risk hurting you due to side effect of the medication. That seems to me to be the basis of what you describe in your circumstance....
