Merchandise Description

By:  Jarrett Barnhill, MD, DFAPA, FAACAP, NADD-CC

In recent years advances in the neurosciences suggest a more complex view of behavioral and
neuropsychiatric disorders among individuals with developmental disabilities. For many, traditional
psychopharmacology raises the specter of untoward side effects or treatment nonresponse. Families
frequently turn to alternative treatments as a solution. Unfortunately these decisions are made without
an awareness of contradictory scientific evidence or potential complications when combined with
psychotropics and other medical treatments. This presentation focuses on omega-3 fatty acids,
melatonin, and a more recent addition, n-acetly cysteine, in the treatment.
