Welcome to Dr. Brown’s Blog.  First, let me introduce myself.  I am Dr. Floyd Brown, Medical Director for Bonita House, Inc.  I’ve never written a blog before and though I’m excited to start, I realize I’m going to need some help.  I look forward to discussing topics such as the effects of psychotropic medications, managing side effects, living with dual disorders, and recovery and wellness issues.  I might delve into issues about the interface between psychiatry and primary care, and possibly my opinions about how to fix the health care system (are you listening President Obama?).   But I welcome questions, topic suggestions, and feedback from readers as well.  If you have questions or suggestions please e-mail me at, or call me at 923-0180.
