I recently put my son on Vyvanse and Ritalin and neither of them worked. My psychiatrist was not super responsive during the process and I am currently looking for someone else as a result. I had 3 questions as I start my new search:
1) In my search for someone new, I want to find someone who not only focuses on medication management but also looks holistically at supplements, vitamins, diet therapies, etc. Does such a thing actually exist because I find most people specialize but there is not 1 person who knows about all of this? I'm wondering if i'm chasing a unicorn here and should just find specialized people?
2) Does anyone know anyone good in northern NJ - either a psychiatrist, neurologist or therapist? It would be a plus if they meet some of the criteria above, but i'll take any recommendations on anyone good who has really good follow up, who is knowledgeable and really made a difference in your kids life.
3) Does anyone know of a good therapist that follows Dr Barkley's 8 step program in northern NJ? We are finding success with it with our son, but our current therapist is against some of Barkley's methods (specifically around time out) so I wanted someone who knows it inside / out who can guide my husband and me through any questions.
