Thanks for your reply. In that case, since I am not from that area, so can't recommend you any individual psychiatrist.

I am opting out from this question and our expert will try to help you as soon as possible.

Kindly do not press accept for my previous answer as I was not able to help you.

Hi,

Dr. Solomon is in that area and is a psychiatrist who also counsels patients as well as prescribes medication. If your bf is having trouble getting his medication adjusted correctly, he will benefit from working with someone who is willing to hear the whole story.
