Experiences With SSRIs Or Alpha-agonist?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My 10-year-old son has PDA. He has been struggling with sleep, having mild panic attacks, and is generally very anxious. A psychiatrist recently recommended we start an SSRI, and potentially an Alpha-agonist (he is very emotionally reactive).
Does anyone have experiences with either of these types of medications?
Thanks,
Jeni
