My son (25) battles depression. He went to Dr Lucas for help.  After a short one on one.... he prescribed him Xanax with a 6 month refill.  Since his visit, my son has withdrawn from society, sleeps alot, memory loss, rages, no motivation....  He is so mellowed out, he doesn't care about anything.  He has distanced himself from all of his family.  I contacted his office by phone and certified mail to notify them of my concerns and asked that he PLEASE do another evaluation before allowing another refill.  Dr Lucas allowed a refill... no questions asked and continues to allow one.  It has been 7 months since he prescribed him Xanax and hasn't required an evaluation or responded that he appreciates my concerns.

Do NOT send your child or recommend Dr Lucas.  Obviously he only cares about the money not the patient.  These symptons / side affects should have raised concern/care for the patient but it didn't. I understand my son is not a minor and they can't share information with me but they can listen to my concerns and address them with the patient.  Mental Illness is not a illness to brush under the rug which is what Dr Lucas and his staff has done.

You.dont.have.a.clue What our family has been through trying to help our son be a functional, responsible, healthy adult.  What works for you doesn't mean it works for everyone!  So you can stick your "mommy" comment up your ass! A caring loving family is there for each other no matter if they're 5...25... Or 75!  if you had family values .... You would understand.  Obviously you dont !  Actually sounds like you work for Dr Lucas.  There are others out there that have been over medicated by Dr Lucas.  Keep researching.... You'll read their story too.  So before you criticize a family trying to save their son's life.... Have a heart and realize mental illness affects the whole family... not just the patient.  God bless you and may you educate yourself before you criticize a Mothers love trying to save her son from a "pill Dr".  Better yet.... You take .5 mg of Xanax 4 times a day.... See how you function!

Good doctor

I just read the comment from the mother of the person who she claims her son is doped up and not receiving any feedback from Dr. Lucas. I am a current patient and am very satisfied with the service that I get. I see him regularly and have never had any problems. You said your son is not a minor...THAT is why you are not receiving any responses from the office. You are in no way qualified to request any evaluation and have the office follow through. It is up to your son to follow up with the doctor. Xanax is a very common prescription anyway. You can't 'mommy' this until you get the result YOU desire. Your son has to do it for himself.
