We are again having disapline issues and she is showing signs of some anxiety what should i do should iput her back on the meds or consult a nother dr

 

 

Doctor: I understand your concern about over medicating you child . However the best way to manage this condition is through a c ombination of medication as well as psychotherapy and behavior therapy. I would highly advice you to restart the medication and give her all round treatment.  I hope this helps.
