NO NO NO NO !
One thing we all try to avoid for obvious reasons is giving out medical advice - ESPECIALLY regarding meds ! First, unless you are educated and trained in the field you are unqualified. Secondly, even if you are, you can't make an accurate diagnosis over a couple posts on an internet forum ! (which you would know)
The current list of modern psyc meds is a very dangerous list and there are huge problems worldwide because of abuse and inappropriate use of these (often untested) medications.
The valid advice you offered.....seek a GOOD psychologist/psychiatrist. A good start. That will be challenge enough - finding someone both truly qualified and willing to put in the time to work real HEALING on a person in a holistic way. Because when it comers to matters of mental health there is no other alternative. It's (we) all a connected, interactive system.
