would you know a psychiatrist that can prescribe medication on a sliding scale in the long island area. My son is 20 has OCD and high anxiety disorder diagnosed (also had tourettes mild when he was young seems to have outgrown it) Very smart but I found out he couldn't even handle being in college more than a few days at a time dropped out. not capable of working for today...ocd psychologist said needs medicine I can't afford the high price.. He needs medication, he is being abandoned by his dad this month and coming to live with me I have found psychology services on a sliding scale as a support at stonybrook hospital but not for medication....sliding scale is the key I can get to Suffolk or Nassau county.

Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your query in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
First and foremost you should seek a consultation from a psychiatrist who needs to confirm a diagnosis of OCD. The possible choice of medications are like fluoxetine clomipramine fluvoxamine. All the medications are given in a sliding scale where in the dose of medications are gradually increased so that the child doesnt suffer any side effect.
Regarding the financial difficulties , the agencies to approach differ from country to country. The best person to guide you in this respect is your GP who will have an idea of your local regulations.
Hope that helps.
Wish you good health.

Thanks for your clarification.
Unfortunately health care magic doesn't have any specialist to manage anxiety disorder from long island.
I understand your concern, but you can have a a look at "Long Island Psychiatric PLLC" located at 2 Main Street, Suite 8, Roslyn, NY 0000 with a website WWW.WWWW.WW I think these people can help you out with your concerns.
Hope that helps,
