Ten Questions About Kids and Medication Lecture CANCELED. Here’s the alternate plan…

Question MarkNOTE: The Skylight Financial Group event scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, June 15 has been CANCELED by the organizers. Our apologies to anyone who planned to attend.

Since there was lots of interest in the topic of frequently asked questions  about kids and medication , I’ll cover each of the questions I’d planned to address during the lecture in a blog series we’ll run through July, following our current series on the changes in diagnostic criteria included in the DSM-5.

I’d also be happy to answer specific questions from our readers about kids and medication I hadn’t planned to discuss on the days between posts in July. So, if you have questions about psychiatric medications and kids of general interest, post them below and I’ll tackle them next month. Obvious disclaimer: I can’t answer questions pertaining to an individual child’s condition or treatment-those questions need to be redirected to the child’s prescribing clinician. 

The slides we had planned to use for the lecture are embedded below.
