Discussions that mention cogentin

Autism Spectrum board

Hi, my name is ann I am new at this, I have a serious concern. My son is 17 years old has autism and bipolar. When he was younger he was very violent. He is on meds like lithium and risperdal, trazadone and cogentin the last 5 years he was very good almost no behaviors. I thought I was in heaven. Now in the last 6 months he returning to some aggression, not as bad as before but slowly getting there. I am so afraid of that since he is 180lbs and 6ft2. he use to hit, bite pull hair, break things, it was a terrible time. wondering if any other mothers went through this. Any suggestions
