My daughter is 11 and her SIB’s and maladaptive behaviors’ are increasing!! She is definitely going through puberty We are about to start a low dose of Prozac bc Medical Marijuana is not an option in my state which sucks because THC did amazing when tried once with an edible!! I would prefer this over any other prescribed drugs!! If it is legal in your state I highly recommend getting on it!! Please anyone give me feed back on Prozac!! She is also EXTREMELY OCD and SEVERE ANXIETY!! Thank-you

Hi dear fellow parents,
I wish to hear your thoughts and opinions as I am still undecided, even though every case is different, all opinions will be highly appreciated.

About my son -
- He's turning 7 soon
- Diagnosed at around 3 yrs old, high functioning autism.
- Some very mild stimming… read more
If so, what is your impression of him and the experience? I had a 15 min consult with him and before i start the tx with him, i wanted to know and learn about others' experience with him. Thanks.
Hi so I had (past tense for other reasons) a friend whom was very close for a few months with 2 girls and her oldest daughter 4yrs was diagnosed with asd.

Hitting his head when he was mad (with his fists or on the wall), his speech was falling way behind(compared to ALOT of other kids) and his overall developmental… read more
