Less meds? Not anymore.

september 6 2008

Like I already expected, lowering the dosage of the meds of my autistic son doesn't help ayone.
He's more aggitated, unfriendly and demanding.
He tries to force me to give him sweets and chips (he's got an eating disorder) and when I don't, he stamps on the stairs and against the wall.
With the power of 150 kg behind that, it's not a pretty experience.

This morning we had a talk about it and he suggested himself to go back to the old dosage.
So that's what we're going to do.

I don't like medicating my children, but in this case it's the only option.
Without medication I can't no longer have him here in the house, because his meltdowns are far too severe.

Right at the moment it's difficult enough.

  1. Wow you've really got your work cut out, I really admire your energy and dedication to your children. Is it Prada Willy syndrome that your son has? You can tell me to shut up if i'm being too nosy :) I saw a documentry about it once that's why I was asking.

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling. If meds are the way to keep him home with you, and keep everyone including him safe, then it sounds like going back to the meds is the right thing to do. Hang in there!
    Sending hugs:)
