Reply To: neurologist or psychiatrist?


Thank you for your responses. I’m also not saying no one should be on Prozac, just that my kid shouldn’t. It doesn’t make sense to me as a response to “there is a lot of bad behavior and difficulty with self-regulation during mornings and evenings when he’s not on Ritalin.”

It is VERY common here to consult neurologists about ADHD, so I guess the neurologists that have been recommended have a lot of experience. But I also guess that there is no way someone who doesn’t live here can really advise me. Unfortunately it seems like there is no way someone who lives here or even is a counselor at my school can advise me either. It seems like most kids with ADHD get medicated from a neurologist and a few also get some kind of half-assed therapy.

I am kind of very frustrated about this.
