  • Inquiries from third parties: We are happy to see persons referred through employers, insurance companies, EAPs, etc., however, the person in question needs send us a mail from our website.
  • Medications in Japan: The Center can not provide specific information in an e-mail on what type of medical care is available in Japan, or how to procure medications that are not available in Japan, out of context to your needs. All persons need to be interviewed in a session in order to recommend an appropriate plan of care after these needs are carefully assessed. These interviews may be conducted by phone or Skype for persons coming from overseas or located outside the Tokyo area. Note that few of the medications used for ADD/ADHD overseas are available in Japan, and some are illegal to have or bring into Japan. The Meguro Counseling Center can discuss the options available for ADD/ADHD treatment in Japan in a scheduled session.
  • Information Requests: Many persons request information for an article, class project, documentary, pharmaceutical marketing, career advice, how to become a counselor, etc. Please note that provision of such information would be a professional service, the exact fees of which would be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Some ADHD persons can’t function even for a few minutes at a time. When deadlines draw near they rush and lose sleep just to catch up. It’s very hard to coach these persons without medical intervention. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Some people can’t even face a friendly situation, some are tough as nails and can face huge risk like this speech in the Italian parliament this week: https://t.co/DEm6PlO9pi.

If your mood is low you’ll feel bad about yourself. You may be nervous in front of others & you may feel rejected easily. If your mood is high you may be optimistic and confident. Its your mood, not your situation! Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Some persons with hyperactivity have social stress at the same time they get depression. Do we fix the social stress, the hyperactivity, or the depression? We can’t let depression go ignored as it can lead to bad outcomes. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Are sleeping pills “addictive”? Yes and no. They don’t cause craving or a “high” but they can cause one’s natural sleep mechanisms to get rusty causing these persons to require a slow taper of their medicines. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Intense and emotional persons may have impatience, rejection sensitivity, or some minor depression. If we don’t try different interventions we won’t get data on what it is or what to do with it. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Many persons don’t want to be “dependent” on a medication to help moods. Only when debilitating can they really see it’s out of their control and they will accept medical help. Us: https://t.co/VOm63Hc41r, https://t.co/uaoP3ZvxU7

Losing weight? Only exercise or only diet may work if done correctly. Commonly, persons think that “a bit” of exercise is enough. They don’t realize that they are just using up energy in their blood & muscles, not burning fat. Us: https://t.co/VOm63HtESZ, https://t.co/uaoP3ZdWvx

Many patients have a myriad of problems and symptoms: smoking, drinking, nail-biting, insomnia. Impatience, burn-out. Looking closely, they are all connected. Guess how! Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

Drs in big public agencies that see autistic kids don’t easily try adjunctive medications for associated symptoms. It’s because these agencies don’t have systems that easily allow out-of-the-box treatments, doctors are risk-averse, and the paperwork increases.

Many persons have been traumatized by being in a cult. Sexual abuse under the guise of “spiritual experience” is commonly reported. The cult was probably started as a cover for sex and pedophilic activity. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

Persons frequently complain about bad grammar, spelling & trouble with making sense in their emails. This can be due inattention and requires looking closely at other signs of trouble with attention, organization, and planning. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mCEuf, https://t.co/urVpIy8ewg

Long history of depression can make persons think depressed mood is normal and only when there are stressors do they dip and feel worse. Therapy is important to help them see the stress-dips over the background of depression. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

What causes bad dreams? Nobody know for sure, but daytime fears and trauma, anxiety or depression disorders, substance and medicine use and withdrawal, sleep and other brain disorders are known to be associated. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

Can anxiety and ADHD be related? If hyperactive people are impatient then that can lead to tension and more anxiety. Both need to be treated. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G

We Americans live here in Japan, but does that mean we have the same risk as Japanese for Corona virus? Not really, because Americans didn’t get the BCG Tb vaccine which seems correlated to risk of Corona illness severity. Us: https://t.co/W6SS4mUflN, https://t.co/urVpIxQD7G
