Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for your answer. I am already in touch with Mifsa, in fact they are helping my daughter right now. Somehow I hoped for more compelling information from you but as you are inthe US, realise now that was unreasonable of me. However, as the choice is mine, I would like a refund of the $18. I am a retired person on a low income so you will understand that $18 is needed for following this matter up closer to home.
Thank you very much for your attempt to help. Regards, 'Customer'
I've been giving consideration how my communication with this site could be more helpful. Could you transfer my query to a Psychiatrist for whom I would have just one question. What medication would he prescribe a seven (nearly eight) year old boy who was definitely diagnosed with the bipolar condition?
Doctors in Australia are very averse to diagnosing bipolar condition in children but my daughter has begun taking her son to a Peaediatric psychiatrist with the hope that he will be open minded about the situation. It would be useful to know what would be prescribed in the US (where work has been going on for years with children diagnosed as bipolar) just simply as an aid to knowing what was reasonable to prescribe.
Our own experience tells us that epilum would be a likely drug for mood swings in children. Perhaps there are others drugs we should know about. I look forward to hearing from a psychiatrist and thank you for your input and kind reply. I gave you a difficult job simply by being overseas. Kind regards,Customer
