My Son Has Just Started Ritalin ( Elvanse) The Ticking, Biting , Spitting & Verbal Ticks Seem To Have Increased A Lot ..any Suggestions?

I wonder has anyone had any experience with Ritalin causing Tourette's syndrome? My son has had 2 trials of Ritalin the second one is taking place now, he seems to have developed lots of Tourette's like behaviours , coughing and twitching his face, also biting himself and gouging at his eye when upset. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Em

I'm Curious As To People's Opinions On Medication Such As Adderall, Ritalin Or Even CBD Or Cannabinoids.

I'm Curious As To People's Opinions On Medication Such As Adderall, Ritalin Or Even CBD Or Cannabinoids.

We made the decision upon our sone ASD diagnosis to absolutely not get Adderall or Ritalin for our son unless he consistently self harms or cannot attend school unless he's medicated. I am a supporter of medical cannabis and understand CBD may help but as I understand the research is anecdotal at best. I would like to get him to function within the school system, and society in general, until highschool if at all… read more

My Son Is ASD Age 5 Years 9 Months And We Are Looking At Medication To Treat Agressive Behaviors And ADHD Behaviors.

The research I am doing now is with focalin, daytrana, the ritalin patch, oral ritalin, and welbutrin. There is so much information out there, too much! I'm just a nervous mom trying to get as much information as possible to make an informed decision for my child's well-being. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Please be kind. Thanks!

Is Ritalin The Right Choice For My Son? He Was Recently Diagnosed With Aspergers.

Is Ritalin The Right Choice For My Son? He Was Recently Diagnosed With Aspergers.

My son benefits from taking Ritalin to function at school, as well as at home. When he is not medicated, he gets silly and cannot concentrate/daydreams and gets off task often. Ritalin has been his saving grace at school and at home. However, he often suffers from a lot of anxiety at school. When he was in kindergarten and first grade, he used to have meltdowns at school but never had them at home. At the time, he was diagnosed with… read more
