Dr. Frank A. Stanton M.D.'s Expert Contributions
Yes, you are making the right decision for your daughter. I would recommend being extremely conservative in using medication in these circumstances. Your daughter should be given more chances to address the circumstances that are leading to her anxiety. A therapist should be able to help her. READ MORE
Hypnosis can be very effective in stopping smoking depending on finding the right person. I have seen smoking stopped with one session. Tony Stanton, MD READ MORE
People with narcissistic traits can respond positively to therapy with the right therapist. They can change. T. Stanton, MD READ MORE
Clearly, your son has the intelligence to succeed. I might first check to see if there is a school counselor who can assess what has changed - you could also get names of counselors in your area and ask for a more comprehensive assessment. READ MORE
Usually, there is a trigger that the person is not aware of. READ MORE
You may need to monitor their time together more carefully and separate them if you see conflict. Your engagement is going to be much more helpful than talking to your son. READ MORE
No, schizophrenia does not cause memory loss per se. Medications can make the retrieval of memories more difficult, though. READ MORE
I think it would be important to know a clear history of how this developed. Was there a point in time when sex became more important - what is your sexual history and what is the state of your marriage. I would consult a marriage counselor if this is an issue that is causing problems in your relationship. Tony Stanton, MD READ MORE
There are medications that are prescribed to help OCD, but the most lasting results appear to be with therapy. A book that is useful, even though years old, is The Mind and the Brain by Jeffrey M. Schwartz. Tony Stanton, MD READ MORE
You are right - prescribing is a major difference. However, it is important to know the background of either one because there are big differences in training depending on what you are looking for. Many professionals are on a website like LinkedIn where you can see their backgrounds and what they specialize in. Tony Stanton, M.D. READ MORE
Yes, I think it would be helpful to study mindfulness - the books by Jon Kabat-Zinn would be a good place to start. Tony Stanton, MD READ MORE
I would find a good Alanon meeting and then a good sponsor at the meeting. You may need to try a few meetings before you find one that fits. What is best to do for your husband depends on many factors and usually a good meeting will lead you to the best answers. Tony Stanton, M.D. READ MORE
This is not a question that can be well answered by yes or no. It is best answered by his medical doctor who can evaluate the many variables that can be involved. Tony Stanton MD READ MORE
I would recommend that you find a good therapist - one that can really address all the possible factors that could be leading to your increase in eating. Overeating is a message from your body and you need to find out what the message is trying to tell you. You might also want to read Food over Medicine, which is a description of how often food is the most important factor in our health. READ MORE
The short answer to your question is "yes" ADHD can be cured. The longer answer involves knowing exactly what kinds of symptoms your son has suffered - in particular how much has been "behavior problems" and how much has been difficulty with focus and attention. These require different kinds of strategies. Tony Stanton, MD READ MORE
I think one of the best things you could do is to learn about mindfulness meditation - probably Jon Kabat-Zinn is the best place to start. This should give you a skill to "destress" wherever you are. Tony Stanton MD READ MORE
I neglected to give you the authors of the book! Jeffery Schwartz MD and Sharon Begley Tony READ MORE
