Consider 2nd opinion: If you are having symptoms of PTSD, that can be quite distressing. Follow-up with therapy and some closer evaluation of the effects of the medication would seem to be in order. Discuss with your doctor before 3 months and consider getting a second opinion. ...Read more

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
