The Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine (RCBM) brings together a team of more than a dozen mental health professionals with a wide variety of clinical backgrounds and interests. Our approach is based firmly on an integrated psychiatric and behavioral model and we offer full diagnostic and treatment services for children, adolescents, and adults.
Under the medical leadership of Joel L. Young, MD , the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine specializes in the treatment of Depression, Bipolar Disorder and other mood and anxiety disorders. For over a decade, RCBM has been a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in children and adults. Rochester Center also offers a variety of specialized programs.
Psychiatry Research recently published Use of lisdexamfetamine dimesylate in treatment of executive functioning deficits and chronic fatigue syndrome: A double blind, placebo-controlled study, detailing the results of a clinical trial conducted by Joel L. Young, M.D.
In this trial, Young studied 26 adults with chronic fatigue syndrome over the course of 8 weeks. Half the subjects were treated with lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (LDX) and the other half were given placebo. Assessments gauging cognition, fatigue and generalized pain indicated that subjects treated with LDX fared better than the placebo-treated group. LDX (Vyvanse®) is an approved medication for the treatment of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome affects 1 to 4 million individuals in the United States. Those affected suffer high rates of disability and depression. No FDA-approved treatment options currently exist for the treatment of this condition.
In response to Vice President Joe Biden's meeting with representatives from the video gaming industry on violent video games and violent acts, Dr. Young shares his thoughts on the topic in a recent interview with WWJ.
