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.

Good news

I guess today is just another day in which I don’t have an article to post but I do have good news for my son. We went to see his psychiatrist today and with all that is (and isn’t) going on with him, we’ve decided to lower the dosage of his medicine. Yea!

Some days are better than others and today is one of those days.
