Reviews for Effexor to treat Autism
"My son was given this medicine by a developmental pediatrician when he was 8 yrs old. He became more vocal. More at ease around people. He is now 22 yrs old and is still on this medicine, he has Aspergers."

"This is a great medicine for those it helps. It really changed my life around. It has helped me so much to be more comfortable with having Asperger Syndrome and to deal with all the associated issues (OCD, depression, etc). It's literally saved my life. I do recommend trying this medicine as if it works for you, it's worth trying."
