When to Consider Medication

The decision to place a child on medication is not an easy one. It’s important to know the facts before making a choice that influences the developing brains of kids, teens and young adults. Over the course of treating hundreds of children with anxiety or OCD, Dr. Mona Potter has seen medication play an important role—in the right circumstances. In this video she discusses the latest research and breaks down the pros and cons between medicating and not medicating.
