Andrew Catalone NP was my psychiatric nurse practitioner for about sevens years in this time we engaged in a sexual affair and he prescribed me amphetamines, stimulant and diet pills in which I abused. I told him I abused these stimulant medications, he would then discontinue them until next time I asked for them this went on for about 4 years and considerably contributed to my drug addiction. I feel he purposely continued to prescribe me drugs in which he knew I abused in order to keep me \\\"happy\\\" or from telling about our sexual relationship. I didn\\\\t say anything until now. I now have a new psychiatrist and I am getting the proper help for my diagnoses but Andrew Catalone\\\\s actions caused me great distress and contributed to the breakup of my family do to my mental health not being properly taken care of and an increase of drug use and abuse because of his negligence in prescribing controlled substances in which he knew I abused. He substantially effected my life and mental health and addiction in a negative way and also crossed patient practitioner lines by having a sexual relationship with me. I\\\\m speaking out now because I see how his actions have affected my life and I fear that other patients may be going through similar circumstances. He should have his NP license removed and any and all other actions that can be taken against him should be taken.
