A.G. Schneiderman Announces Felony Arrest Of Long Island Psychiatrist On Charges Of Illegally Selling Prescriptions For Controlled Substances To Undercover Investigators

HAUPPAUGE - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest of Nasreen Kader, a psychiatrist, on charges she unlawfully sold prescriptions for controlled substances in the course of her professional practice, without a legitimate medical purpose. The investigation was opened by the Attorney General's office after two Long Island families complained that Kader was over prescribing highly addictive controlled substances to their family members. The felony case lodged against the Suffolk County doctor charges that she repeatedly offered prescriptions for Xanax and Klonopin, powerful tranquilizers used to treat anxiety disorders, and Ritalin, a stimulant prescribed for concentration disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, to undercover Attorney General investigators posing as patients who sought the drugs for illegitimate purposes.
