Klonopin and Focolin
My 3 yr old son has PDD/NOS and SID .. His new developmental pediatrician recently tried him on ritalin and melatonin to help him.. The ritalin seemed to work for one day, he was able to sit and attend to some things and after that, nothing other than noting a difference in aggression and hyperactivity, the melatonin was HORRIBLE.. HYPER HYPER.. She then put him on Focalin and Klonopin earlier this week.. Horrible side effects with Focalin, EXTREME aggression and hyperactivity with the focalin, over emotional and we even thought he was having a seizure. The klonopin was prescribed for sleep and the 1st night it worked like a charm, since then nothing! We are all new to medications and such, is this the norm with some of these medicines? I am really concerned because we have been noticing more symptoms of autism, more arm flapping, he licks stuff all the time and the extreme hyperactivity and no sleep and I am at a loss for what to do sometimes.. He has an appt with a child psychiatrist Dec 22nd.. What can I expect from some of these medicines, positive wise?
