new pdoc won't treat ADD -- need research help

Posted by utopizen on February 6, 2011, at 17:52:20

can anyone help me research on Medline or something to help me find some abstract of a study that explains a patient or group of patients happen to have AD/HD w/ comborbid paranoia or a similar state?

I believe what I had was reactive paranoia; the prognosis is even just as good without being treated with an antipsychotic, although I'm on Risperdal anyhow and don't mind that...

anyhow, because I'm on Risperdal, I'm looking for a study that happens to discuss a treatment regimen after someone got or has paranoia-- one that --doesn't-- include taking the person off an antipsychotic.

He's a new doc, and isn't even entertaining lowering the dose and keeping in mind I'm on an antipsychotic, it's not unreasonable to receive stimulant therapy.

He hasn't even slapped me with assurances he might try Straterra (not to say I want it or it's likely to help) -- but if that gives a hint at how he just cares about me not getting psychotic again. He is convinced all his peers would never think to keep me on an amphetamine.

I've heard kids with cardiac arrest from Adderall get their dose lowered a tad and get a beta blocker added-- and that's a life or death situation. I was a peaceful paranoid, in the episode I had. I don't think it's even something I'd call a risk. More of a potential annoyance... not heart-stopping.

Basically, he's paranoid I might get paranoid again if I were given a stimulant, and doesn't understand the ramifications of not getting ADD therapy is having on my life. I lost my job recently for not doing some simple task in a reasonable time, and I don't want to add failed out of school to my list.

He doesn't care I'm in classes... and trying to put my life together. please help if you read anything where I could bring to him... thanks!
