Josh Feder, MD.
Editor-in-Chief of The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report.
The pandemic continues and our kids’ problems are growing. We hope this issue helps you in your assessments— using scales, embracing discrepant stories. We also offer thoughts on effective school inclusion and the place of atomoxetine and IV ketamine in our work.
One side note: Fentanyl deaths are rising—warn your patients and families about fake and deadly over-the-counter medications including OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, Adderall, and Xanax (www.tinyurl.com/2p8yctjk).
Check out our new book, Prescribing Psychotropics: From Drug Interactions to Genetics. It’s an updated edition of Drug Metabolism in Psychiatry by Daniel Carlat. For more information, go to: www.thecarlatreport.com/prescribing.
As always, don’t hesitate to get in touch—we want to hear from you.
