My son is 14 yrs. old and has cerebal palsy. For the past year, he has been experiencing bad behavior, such as, whining, screaming for no apparent reason. I am at my wits end with this. I don't know what else to do. Please can anyone shed some light on this for me?

I don't recommend it at all. It will do some bad things to him, but it will stop him from feeling really good and really bad,. it has the effect of suppressing emotions and feelings due to effect on dopamine and related neurotransmitters. It will cause changes in the neurotransmitters in any human, and this can be permanent if you discontinue the medication too abruptly. But many people use these horrible things on young kids these days, so go ahead and join up with everyone and do damage to your son, if you are that way.
