Our expert says:
Such drugs should NEVER be prescribed for a child except by a qualified child psychiatrist ( never a GP ), and if this is done, that shrink's job was to fully explain the diagnosis and the treatments and drugs used. Its good for a paediatrician to identify psychiatric problems, but better for a child psychiatrist to confirm diagnosis and treatment, as detailed training in such diagnosis and treatment is not usually a part of the training of a paediatrician.
