my son is autistic with ADHD and suffers from aggression, impulsivity, hyperness and lack of focus. He is currently takiing Abilify 10 mg daily, clonidine (0.1mg tab) 1- 1/2 in the am, 1/2 tab @ p.m. and 1-1/2 at bedtime along with concerta 18 mg in the am. He is still showing signs of aggression along with irretablility and lack of focus and I don't want to keep going up on his meds. He is 8 yrs old and is currently 92 pounds. Im worried about all of the side effects these medication can have.
I really don,t think he should be on this many drugs at only eight years old and also as he is autistic he must find it hard to explain how he feels I think its so sad and my heart goes out to him. I think he needs firstly all your love and support and perhaps a therapist to help him deal with his autism . I also think he may be wrongly diagnosed as ADHD because of his condition which must be very frustrating for him and I really hope he gets the right help!
