what drugs work well on austics besides zyprexa and ablilify, HELP PLEASE!!!
My 15 year old austic teen brother was on zyprexa and doing great. He had less outbursts and was more emotionally stable. He also was able to start reading. A big acheivement for him because he is also mentally retarted. It was like a miracle drug for him but do his excessive weight gain (a major side effect of this drug) he was taken off of it. My mom and I then decided to be anti drug and he was on nothing for about 3 months. The outburst started again. He threw chairs, pushed a little kid into a foutain then laughed, he refused to learn/listen in school,hit children, screamed in public,extremley hyper(stay up on night), and just extremely angry all the time. It was insane!!! Now he is on abilify. He is now withdrawn, talks to himself constantly, and regressed in all areas, especially school. On the postive he is able to sleep through the night and has lost weight. but OVERALL ITS NOT WORKING!!! is there any other medications reccomended for austic teens besides zyprexa and abilily. Any help would be greatly appreaciated.
