Articles: PANDAS

PANS (Pediatric Acute Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) and PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infections) are both severe types of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). While both are typically caused by infections, PANDAS is specifically due to strep. Thankfully, treatments are available to address both conditions. In some patients, herbal and/or prescription antibiotics may be able to fully resolve symptoms. For others, they may need additional protocols to balance neurotransmitters and brain chemistry, either in the form of a supplement or sometimes even prescriptions or talk therapy. However, the journey begins with a diagnosis that identifies the symptoms and rules out other conditions.
