When is psychiatric medication the right choice for kids? Which side effects may be cause for concern? Does medication affect kids' personalities? What are the alternatives? Can medication lead to drug abuse? Psychiatric medications are being used with increasing confidence to treat a variety of child and adolescent disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and Tourette syndrome. For parents, however, deciding whether to allow a child to take medication for an emotional or behavioral problem may be one of the toughest choices they will ever face. When a son or daughter needs help, parents need more than a brief medical consultation--and more than a prescription slip. This essential book provides the up-to-date information that will enable readers to fully understand what their child's doctor is recommending, and what their options are. With loads of real-life examples, answers to frequently asked questions, and helpful tables and charts, Harvard University researcher and practitioner Dr. Timothy Wilens explains which medications may be prescribed for children, and why; examines effects on children's health, emotions, and school performance; and helps readers become active, informed managers of their child's care.
