You : You write very well for someone who is 12 years old. I am glad that you wrote in. Please tell your parents right away about your thoughts of suicide. If a family doctor or a pediatrician is prescribing your concerta, then he or she can consider consulting with a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in helping people with these types of problems.
Sometimes people can have side effects to medications. Some of the possible side effects with Concerta can include decreased appetite, weight loss and blurred vision. If you have extreme mood swings and depression your parents need to tell your doctor right away. Sometimes irritability can also occur and this is even more serious if you are not able to sleep or you develop a whole lot of energy.
If you your thoughts of suicide are so serious that you want to kill yourself at the time you are writing this, then your parents should take you to the nearest emergency room. Any thoughts of suicide are not a good thing.
Please ask your parents to read this as soon as you read my answer to you. Remember to be very honest with your parents and with the medical provider who helps you so that they get a good understanding of your situation. Good luck. ...Read more

Does a flat nasal bridge and wide set eyes always mean a chromosome disorder?

Does a flat nasal bridge and wide set eyes always mean a chromosome disorder?

If you suspect that this person has a chromosome disorder, the doctors that diagnose them are called genetecists.

In fact, they overlap in symptoms to some degree and some people get non-fearful panic attacks with vertigo as the predominant symptom. Do you have any medication for break- through panic?
