What can I do if my 9 year old nephew has adhd, anxiety, and depression. What can I do to help him?
Love him for who he : Is. Spend time with him - encourage him to talk about things he likes (even if it would be boring to an adult). Offer to baby sit once in a while so that his parents get a break. Taking care of children with special needs is exhausting.

I will be a uncle soon.. I have been asked to attend the birth of my sister-in-law's baby. I have severe anxiety over this. What do I do?
Being considerate: Sounds like an intimate family event which ought to also mean that members can talk freely about how they're feeling. Something is a bit "off" if this is not true - you might know this. If there's authentic closeness, you'll be able to express yourself and find a comfortable distance that may allow others to hang back too. As with cold germs, you don't want to spread anxiety - you're considerate. ...Read more

I have social anxiety &have to present to my class. Ill have an anxiety attack &my mom cant help because she doesnt know about my anxiety,what do I do?
Propranolol.: The medication to try is a low dose of Inderal (propranolol). Start with 10 mg. an hour before your presentation but you can go as high as 20 mg. The unlikely adverse event is dizziness and light-headed with a decrease in pulse and blood pressure. The minimum dose for treating the latter is 60 mg. and usually twice that so the dose for social anxiety is very low. ...Read more

Not unusual: Sometimes people have unrealistic fears about medications or maybe she has had bad experiences with the side effects of medications. A good place to start would be with some education.

Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What do you suggest if my son has just been diagnosed with asthma, he is 3 and a half. what can I do to help ease his symptoms?
See A Specialist: Diagnosing asthma in small children is difficult because many of them are unable to perform a spirometry or a fractional exhaled nitric oxide level. As a result, the diagnosis is an educated guess and children are often undertreated or wrongly treated. If your child really has asthma, he should be on an inhaled steroid or at least Montelukast on a daily basis. ...Read more
