My son is currently being weaned off of the Deapakote for his Grand Mal seizures. His behavior did get worse after using the Depakote. We have been down the long road of DAN doctors doing GFCF diet, chelation, hyperbaric oxygen, supplements, etc, with little change.

Have you tried essential oils? I have recently been able to wean my son off of a blood pressure medication, which was used for helping with sleep, by using Lavendar oil instead. I also am in the process of weaning him off of a medication for behaviors and replacing with a blended oil. I WISH I would have found these oils years ago!!

You can get more information about the oils on my website. I am not trying to sell you on them, but trying to share a very good resource. If you have any questions my number is (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators) or I would be more than happy to teach you a class on line (no costs involved) We have spent soooo much money in the past with all of these other treatments and these oils are so economical compared to all of those. These oils are also good for many other ailments besides Autism. Thanks and God Bless you and your family! Anna
