I have this rare form of ADHD. What that means is I can read a lot, about a lot of subjects, and luckily I have better than average retention, combined with lesser attention. So if I try to finish a long project before putting it up, it’s just never going to happen. However summarizing a research paper or answering questions in an in depth manner is right up my alley. So that’s what I intend to do. This is a work in progress, that I don’t expect will ever be complete, so I hope to update it regularly with new questions, better answers if I find them, and new FAQ topics.
Definitely, if you have a relevant question that you would like me to address, or you think one of my answers can be improved, or is just wrong, please don’t hesitate to send an email.
My answers are not endorsed bureaucratic consensus papers. If you want that, check out Cochrane reviews. Rather what I’m giving is my opinions based as much on research (from which I do my best to sort the good from the bogus) combined with my experience trying various methods out on myself and my patients, and short of either, I don’t mind making some educated guesses as to what I think, based on my background and what seems like common sense to me. In answering various questions, I’ll try to make it clear what various levels of certainty are regarding my answers. Medicine, like life is imperfect. Do consider the source, and the references supporting my ideas, but I do think my opinions are better than consensus endorsements, often considerably so.
Definitely send an email here. If you make a strong case based on research and sound logic, I would love to hear it and if convinced I will definitely update my FAQ.
