My son has been on Gabapentin, Risperidone , and clonidine for awhile but it seems to me Al is more aggressive then usual. So what would be another medication that would work for his mood and behavior.
My son also tried a variety of medication all of which caused an increase in aggression. I have chosen to go medication free and focus on behavioral therapy. It is difficult for sure, but I didn't like the way the medications seemed to change his personality. I also notice that the more processed foods he eats the worse his behavior gets.
My son is on lamictal & Seroquel for aggression. Once we found the right dose he is doing much better with his aggression. Medication is a rough issue. What works for one may not work for another. Good Luck!
We use GABA and Theanine as a calming agent. And 5HTP works well too. No side effects :D Works wonders for anxiety issues on our ASD kiddos :D
All of those things have a side effect of fatigue...He may be acting out because of feeling tired...I know that happened to my son when I tried some different meds. He currently only take clonidine to help him sleep. Maybe discuss with your doctor some medications that are not sedatives? Finding out the cause of the behaviors/aggression (anxiety? communication? physical state/illness?) would be helpful in fining a solution.
