Before recommending any medication, the psychiatrist will interview your child and make a thorough diagnostic evaluation. In some cases, the evaluation may include a physical exam, psychological testing, laboratory tests, other medical tests and/or consultation with other medical specialists.
Medications which have beneficial effects may also have side effects, ranging from slightly bothersome to very serious. As each child is different and may have individual reactions to medication, close contact with your Burrell psychiatrist is recommended. Do not stop or change a medication without speaking to the doctor.
When prescribed appropriately by a psychiatrist, and taken as prescribed, medication may reduce or eliminate troubling symptoms and improve the daily functioning of children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders.
We accept most insurance as well as Missouri Medicaid.
