Medicine & autism

I must say that this article has got me thinking. With my son on two different medications, I’m beginning to think does he need them? I think it’s time to ask his psychiatrist that question the next time we have an appointment.

The article is entitled “Autism’s Drug Problem: Many people on the spectrum take multiple medications, which can lead to serious side effects and may not even be effective” by Lauren Gravitz over at Scientific American.

Sincerely-
