Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am so...ooo very sorry to hear about what is going on. W O W ! ! ! It is hard to analyze just what the effect may be of all these medications. I have been treating ADD/ADHD children and adults for many years. I have NEVER heard of one person being on ALL those medications at once for ADD. NEVER!!!!! Certainly, the lack of appetite, upset stomach, and headaches are caused by all these medications. No, I would not go the holistic route. Add/ADHD is a genetic disorder. It is not a psychological problem. Who on earth prescribed all these medications? What is the training of the person who prescribed this toxic cocktail? Astounding!!!!! Run, don't just go for a second opinion. But, please, ONLY go to a child psychiatrist. What city, state and zip code are you in?
My heart breaks to hear the mistreatment of your son. We must get this remedied.
I'm in Hockessin,Delaware 19707. A child psychiatrist actually did prescribe these medications.
It's unbelievable! It makes me think of a little boy that I treated many years ago who was ADD and asthmatic. He is now a grown man. Went to a top private school, Princeton, law school and is not at a top NYC law firm. With the right kind of treatment we can set things straight.
Let me look for another child psychiatrist in your area.
Now at a top law firm
You have actually made me cry. I thought my precious son would never be able to show his true potential. This is really effecting our whole family. We are devastated. Thank you so much for your help.
Should I click ACCEPT now or would that disconnect our chat?
Clicking ACCEPT will not disconnect the Chat.We can continue after you click ACCEPT. Believe me that little boy I was talking about was all over the place. Look at where he got. Your son can, too. But trust me, with ADD, he needs to be on medication. NOT what he's on. He also needs help to structure him. Let's go the first step --- proper medication. I'm going to look for someone now. I'll be back. I want to also check out credentials.
Be back soon.
I just wanted to say that this may take me longer than I though because I am checking everybody out, so please be patient. I'll be back as soon as I find someone.
Once I click ACCEPT it tells me I will exit our chat. I have clicked it a few times and got the same response. Anyway, I promise I will click it at the end of our conversation. Thanks again.
Dr. Schaye, are you still there?. I hope I haven't lost you.
You haven't lost me, don't worry. I am just looking over everyone's credentials very, very carefully. That's why it's taking me long. I want to be sure that your son gets someone who is properly trained.
