About

Bio

I am a board certified psychiatrist, in practice over twenty years. I specialize in adult outpatient psychiatry, emphasizing an integrative biopsychosocial approach to patient care. I offer comprehensive diagnostic consultations as well as psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

No EnergyWt.Loss Dx: Low energy (asthenia) is a side effect found in greater than 10% of people taking venlafaxine. Weight loss occurs in 1-6% of people taking this medication. So it is possible that the drug is causative. However, an 80 lb weight loss and no energy is significant enough to warrant a doctor to look for other medical concerns that could be causing these sympotms.

Med4stress/insomnia : Lorazepam is an antianxiety drug that has also been used for treatment of insomnia. Not all job stress and insomnia problems require medication treatments but if a medication is indicated then Lorazepam could be tried. Only the doctor treating you would be able to tell you if your particular situation requires any medication treatment and that provider should be contacted about your concerns.
