My best friend has just been diagnosed with parkinsonism due to long term use of antipsychotic drugs. I am trying to get her to a new psychiatrist/psychopharmacologist so that they can try to help her better manage her drugs. The problem is that she needs a psychopharmacologist that will accept medicare. Can anyone suggest someone who can help her finally get her mental diagnosis properly diagnosed and parkinsonism symptoms relieved. She is seeing a psychiatrist but I feel perhaps someone with also has a continued education in psychopharmacology may be able to better manage her. I hate seeing her like this. (through the years she has had a diagnosis of schizophrenia, then bi-polar and now post traumatic stress syndrome). thank you for any suggestions
