Child Overmedication

Amy Exum

Any change in child’s behaviors is the first step to know if he’s overmedicated, according to the specialists’ opinion.

Also, they agree that it’s important to see the right kind of physician or psychotherapist. “They may be not going to see a primary care physician or a psychiatrist, making sure that they are seeing somebody who is specialized or housing individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. If the patient is having family issues, he should go to see counseling, who is able to treat anyone”, says Amy Exum.

Graciela Jimenez adds that if parents notice that their child is overmedicated they should go back to the physician that prescribed the medicine or find a different specialist.
