Hi there, my 17 year old daughter with Down Syndrome has been struggling with anxiety and associated symptoms - predominantly OCD and getting 'stuck'. This has been going on for nearly 2 years.
Recently she has become pretty much lost in her own world predominantly clearing her throat loudly and repeating the same phrase every couple of minutes or so.
She's been on the lowest dose of Setraline for some time and I think this needs some consideration but CAMHS are fairly ineffective and hard to get hold of. I appreciate the pressure they are under of course.
My question: does anyone know of a UK (Hampshire ideally) psychiatrist with Down Syndrome experience? We've talked to the DSA and they've been helpful but unable to suggest anyone.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
