Good morning everyone,
I just wanted to know what is everybody’s thoughts on using medication on autistic children. Last year when Giankarlos first got his diagnosis his specialist suggested to put him on clonidine. He is very active and since he was starting Pre-k he said it would allow him to bemore calm and be able to pay more attention. I decided not do it at the time since I wanted to see how he did at school. I have been speaking with Giankarlos teacher who says he is very active and does not pay too much attention, although he is learning a lot. He has a follow up appointment with his developmental specialist next week and I don’t know what to do. To medicate or not? Any suggestions? Is any of your children on clonidine?
Thanks in advance.
