Pediatrician 's  Response
Even though these drugs help in the short run they may not give permanent relief. The drugs also have adverse effects. That is why many psychiatrists are exploring other modalities like music therapy, dietary modification and meditation. If you want you can visit the site of Peter R. Breggin MD, psychiatrist for more information. I recommend classical music and meditation.
