Has Anyone Tried Intuniv And Risperdal Together For Their Kiddo?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

We are in the process of weaning our 10 yr old off of fluvoxamine as he is showing signs of severe side effects ( extreme aggression/ rages) Since we started taking him off it ( almost 3 week process) , we have seen a slight improvement in his aggression. He is also on intuniv at night. His doctor would like to try risperdal with that to address his attention, impulsivity,anxiety and aggression. Has anyone tried this combination with their kiddo?

Latuda And Autism
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My 13 year old son with Moderate-Severe Autism has been taking Risperol and Chlonidine for a few years with success. He has recently developed horizontal stretch marks in the middle of his back. Our first thought was due to his growth as he is over 6' tall and skinny as a rail. Our Psychiatrist told us that the stretch marks are a result of the Risperdol. The stretch marks are increasing so he wants to gradually make the switch to Latuda. Has anyone else had any experience with Latuda and… read more

What do these people eat if you cut out all grains and carbs?? All that's left is protein and a diet too high in protein isn't good, either.

Autism ADHD Aggression And Meds
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

I asked before about meds for kids with Autism ADHD and aggressive behavior. I do not like risperdol and ADHD meds do not work for Ian they made him worse. Some people said their kids took Haldol but I looked up side effects and didnt care for that much either. Seems all meds require lots of blood work which would be a nightmare for us. Could I get some input about meds for ADHD plus the aggressive behavior w autism. Anyone used seroquel

A MyAutismTeam Member

Love seroquel for my son Caleb.

Medications For Behavior
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

I would love to hear your experiences with medication, especially in the treatment of anxiety, anger, and explosive behaviors.
My youngest son is currently experiencing some marked behavior issues that we didn't experience with my oldest son (both ASD).
(Already working with a behavioral therapist and integrating a good deal of sensory support into OT both at school and in private therapy).

The first thing the psychologist suggested after she gave the diagnoses was Risperdol. And I said No. Recently the pediatrician also suggested Risperdal and I said - "He just started proper school… read more

'Risperidone' , 'Omeprazole' And 'Hydroxyzine'
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

'Risperidone' : What's your Experience.
'Omeprazole' : What's your Experience.
'Hydroxyzine' : What's your Experience.
What I mean by that is, How did your Child react to each.
Did it disrupt their Sleep?
Did it make them have Psychedelic experiences? (if mixed with Melatonin)
Did it make them want to tear off their skin?
Did they Urinate Uncontrollably?

Be careful if your child is receiving ANY anti-psychotic medication like risperidone. Can cause tardive dyskinesia as it has my son. Anytime he acted up the group home drugged him instead of finding… read more
