  • Thank you for sharing your story and educating us. I am sorry for your suffering. I also agree with JeffreyC in pointing out that cognitive injury from psychiatric drugs is also frequently severe, persistent and also unrecognized by the medical community, the sales people, and society at large (outside of the MIA audience).

  • I am so encouraged by the broad reach of this article. I am especially thrilled that over the last couple of weeks after PANDAS/PANS Awareness Day on Oct 9, through we have been able to educate several thousand more people. Thank you. Parents, teachers, school nurses, therapists, counselors: everyone can make a difference to decrease the suffering of children incorrectly labeled and medicated.

  • Thanks so much for your comments. That is exactly why I have written this article. This is still a little known problem in medicine. I’ve been thrilled that I have been able to reach and increase awareness to so many people through! PANDAS and other medical causes must be considered before incorrectly labeling a child.
