DR.CHENEY GAVE MY SON LEXAPRO 3 MONTHS AGO CAUSING HIM TO HAVE AN ADVERSE REACTION. EVEN KNOWING HE PRESCRIBED HIM ANOTHER SSRI A YEAR BEFORE THIS WITH SAME REACTION. HIS LIFE HAS BEEN A LIVING HELL SINCE THIS HAPPENED WITH A MULTITUDE OF HEALTH ISSUES AND DR. CHENEY DOESN'T WANT TO STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING TO DO FURTHER TESTING OR TRY TO HELP US IN ANY WAY. IT'S HORRIBLE HOW SOME DOCTORS WANT TO PRESCRIBE MEDICINE TO CHILDREN OR ADULTS WITH NO CARE YOU COULD CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE.
