Tommorow, December 8th, on the Dr. Ira Breite Show, Sirius 114 and XM 119

Sorry about the late post, I have been on call all weekend and finally snagged a break. So this will understandably be a brief post: YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS SHOW: it will be GREAT!

We will be talking with Dr. Laura Smith and Dr. Charles Elliot, the authors of "Seasonal Affective Disorder for Dummies" about this important and misunderstood condition. When I walked out of my office at 4:30 PM Friday into the darkening New York City sky, I knew these guys would be great guests.

CALL US at 1-877-NYU-DOCS if you get blue or depressed during the winter and would like to talk to an expert about some of the things you can do.

If you have a problem adolescent, you need to listen to the show. We are privileged to have Dr. Charles Sophy, who is the edical Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the nation's largest Foster Care Operation. He is also the co-anchor of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which is on VH1. If you are having some problems with your adolescent (and if you don't think you there must really be a problem!) he will be there to talk about important things that you can do. You can also call Dr. Sophy at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

We will be talking about blood pressure and blood pressure medications. Did you ever wonder how your physician chooses amongst the vast number of products out there? We'll be ready to answer all of your questions at 877-NYU-DOCS.

And of course, there is ask Dr. Ira, when you can ask me, New York City Internist and Gastroenterologist, any question you want on any medical topic: with no copay and no waiting room! We'll be talking a little about my weekend on call as well.
