Help Ex Wont Give My Son His Meds.

Help Ex Wont Give My Son His Meds.

Help my ex wont give my son his meds on the weekends or vacation time he has him. so my son goes days without it and comes home more upset and violent with his sisters and me. I have try to talk to his father about making sure that he gets it but got told that he can give it to himself which the doctor says no because of where he is on the spectrum.

im working filing a petition but it also will cost me 3000 by the time I file and get a lawyer to help. I have all the letters from the doctors. guess its going to be the first part of the year until I can get things for money together.

thanks for the idea we have used that one and still have the same problem and then when he gets mad at me he called the cops because I didn't give him the bottles of the pills came in. which got me in trouble. its a big mess. My son knows when he is to take them first thing in the morning and at night an hour before bed. He is 12 almost 13 but mentally doctors say like a 5 to a 7 year old.

I don't know how old your son is but maybee if you got a pill box labeled for your ex it would be easier for him to give meds in morning and night. Sometimes men just want the easiest way and if it is 90% done for them then maybe he will follow giving directions. But you can also get a watch with a timer for your son to wear and set alarms and teach him to say time for my meds when the alarms go off. If he has an ipod he could use that too.

I have had the doctor try to talk to him but he doesn't want to listen because his whole family thinks that you can out grow autism. They keep telling him he will be able to do things like drive and choose where he is going to live even though the doctor says that he wont be able to do either cause of the autism and the court has told my ex that I have control on where my son lives and things.

You may want to get your doctor to write your ex husband a letter explaining the issue and especially explaining the dangers of having a child go off and on this type of medication. Instead of letting the emotion (or perceived emotion) get a hold of the situation, let a third party communicate the facts--especially the dangers.
