  1. Sorry, click too fast, my personal email account; Louisalaw@gmail.com Thanks
  2. Hi My son is graduating in June and will leave his therapeutic school where a psychiatrist is on site. So I need to find a new psychiatrist for him and would like to find an integrative psychiatrist. If you know of or had good experience with any good integrative psychiatrists in New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, I greatly appreciate that you could give me their names. If you prefer, you could send the names to my personal email account. Thanks so much
  3. Hi Three years ago, due to his paranoia, my son was placed out of district in a therapeutic school where psychotherapy, process group, and psychiatric support are given inside the school with a classification of Emotional Disturbance in his IEP. He has been in this therapeutic school for more than 2 years and now he is 18 years old and repeating his 12th grade due to insufficient credits for graduation on time. He is expected to finish all his high school credits and to leave the school in summer. For the meanwhile I need to look into whether he should be placed in some training school
  4. Does anyone know any psychiatrists in New Jersey who is specialized in ASD with OCD/anxiety? You can send me the information to my personal email account: louisalaw@gmail.com. My son is 18 years old with ASD. His current challenge is severe OCD. Thanks so much. Louisa
  5. I found Mary Reed from Safe Harbor website. I filled in the questionnaire she provided regarding my son’s condition, mainly about his OCD. It then came out with some supplements suggestion, and one the them is Evening Primrose Oil. Does anyone know or have experience on its effects on OCD or anxiety? Thanks Louisa
  6. check the following link http://www.anh-usa.org/an-update-on-our-recommended-supplement-companies/ My son takes a lot of supplements which are from Pure Encapsulations
  7. Thanks for taking time to respond My son takes B6 50mg x2 now and will increase the doze in a couple of months. What was the doze you son started off and how long did you start see the effect? Do you remember what was the reason why your psychs said anafranil was the WRONG medication for your son? If I am right, anafranil is the only medicine that is used to specifically treat OCD. My son has taken Zoloft for 3 years, which initially was for his “atypical depression” labelled by his doctor (although we did not see any depression in him). After 1 year, when his OCD emerged and increased, it
  8. Hi, My son used to have mild OCD. But last summer, his OCD increased significantly. Dr. T found he had PANDAS and prescribed him with various kinds of antibiotics, which, unfortunately, made his OCD worse. Later, the Cunningham test showed he had autoimmune disorder and was prescribed with Prendisone, which even made his OCD much worse. So we stopped all these medicine. And later, with increased probiotics, his OCD was relieved. Although it was still significant, it was within a tolerable level. Last week without a clue again (or maybe due to increased social anxiety in school), his O
  9. Can anyone share their experience in IVIG? My son did not respond well with antibiotics and prednisone for his OCD. Dr T. and my son's psychiatric nurse practitioner suggested IVIG may be the next step. Thanks
  10. Can you give me the full name of Dr. K and Dr. L?
  11. My son had seen Dr T for 3 visits. With all the extensive blood work and expensive autoimmue test, he seemed to be confident in getting the right treatment for my son. Unfortunately, the antibiotics and the prednison later on made his OCD even worse. Dr. T and his office responded to our concerns about my son's negative reaction to medicine very late. For one or two times, they simply did not respond at all. So we stopping going.
  12. Anybody knows of good intensive OCD program for late teens in new york/ new Jersey areas?
  13. Does anybody know what the following tests do and how they can help in reference to OCD. Kryptopyrrole test Genetic test with Great Plain Lab Micronutrient test by Spectracell Food Allergy test by US BioTek Neuro-Biogenic Amines ​Thank you
  14. I hope it is not too late to respond. Dr. James Greenblatt is an integrative psychiatrist in Waltham, 20 minutes from Boston. He referred my son to several tests, including food sensitivity, ION test, Organic acid test, Gluten and Casein Peptides. He prescribed different vitamins and supplement for my son who made tremendously improvement in his paranoia since then. You can google him to locate his office and telephone number.
  15. Thanks for your information My son has Sjogren's AB SS-A negative and SS-B positive. Just found out the research paper (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25735642) with conclusion as below The presence of anti-SSB, without anti-SSA antibodies, had no significant association with SS phenotypic features, relative to seronegative participants. The solitary presence of anti-SSB antibodies does not provide any more support than negative serology for the diagnosis of SS. This serological profile should thus be interpreted cautiously in clinical practice and potentially eliminated from
