My son is going to have a sleep study test done. Had to stop Prozac he won't sleep should I cancel ?My son is 13 and has aspergers always has had trouble sleeping so thought sleep study would help not so sure I should go through with it being as withdrawal from Prozac seems bad
When it's and adolescent usually the parents could stay with he or she... some places will even come to the home for disabled children... But, why would they take him off anything??? In the sleep study, they watch vitals/breathing mostly... and we never made people stop their meds. It would change vitals because withdrawal of the many meds. as well as the sleep changes it should be whats going on now regardless of the meds. He is on... I wouldn't cancel the study it's very important to have it done asap if something is going on... ask them why he can't take it??? If he cannot take it can he take melatonin??? If you can stay bring a blanket and pillow from home and stuffed animal or something than soothes him... maybe music may be allowed? I have worked with many kids with autism/aspergers,TS, ADHD, PTSD,etc.
Hope it all works out...
Never hesitate to ask your Dr questions the sleep study place or on here...
Geez. Unless they want to see what he's doing at night if he doesn't have meds, why would they stop his antidepressant. How long does he have to be off of it? If its only 1 day, that's ok. If he has to be off of it for any length of time, I don't think I'd do it. It will take a while to get it back to the level needed. I'm sure you could tell them what happens when he doesn't take it, lol.
