Aggressive Autistics

¨There are medicines available for aggressive autistics,¨ the child psychologist says to me. ¨my favorite is Abilify. I will write that down for you, right here..¨

I don´t want my son to be that kind of autistic. I want him to be like me instead.

I never had a problem with his diagnosis before. But I don´t know if I can do this. I already have a son like this-minus the autism. Two is too much for me.

I don´t want it to be like this.

  1. Oh dear. I so feel for you and I know what you’re going through. Do research – don’t dismiss the idea of drugs without it. My autistic 20 year old has been on Risperdal for fifteen years. He may have been able to do without it but we had zero support when he was diagnosed. Now that I’m single and with a non-autistic child with behaviours… I couldn’t do without the drug.
    Hang in there. Take your time. Breathe.

    • No, I cannot dismiss the meds. When it comes down to a normal life or not, I have to choose normal for him-like I did for my other son before and as I will again. And I will. I just don´t want to be in this situation.. I was hoping it would never happen. Thank you for your support, that does matter to me, I never thought you could take them so long and that they would still be effective. That is fantastic, actually.

      • Yeah, I was actually told he could only stay on them for a few years when he first started taking them. He has to go for regular blood tests, but it’s been fine, so far. Glad I could ease your mind on that, at least. 🙂

      • Yes, very good to hear. I like to stick with what works instead of going back to the drawing board over and over.

      • Indeed. Life is hard enough without going through the same decisions, advocacies, etc. etc. again and again.
