Hi it's been a while since I posted on here. My 4 year old son has been on 2 mg melatonin for almost a year. Everything was going fine until a couple of weeks back , when it just seemed to stop working . He's started refusing to go to bed, doesn't want me to leave him when he goes, gets out of bed,... All the problems we had before he started taking it. He's quite a tall boy for his age, so I m not sure if his dosage needs changing.
...Lawyers are also examining the case of Stephanie Bincliffe, an autistic woman who died from obesity and sleep apnoea after her weight rose to almost 26 stone while in a Yorkshire hospital run by the Huntercombe Group, which specialises in adult mental health problems and brain injuries.
Bincliffe, 25, who had very challenging behaviour, was sectioned when she was 18. During the seven years at the hospital, 75 miles from her family home, she gained more than 10 stone in weight.
Can fragile X occur if there is a family history of autism or is it just a faulty gene? i would like to know as i'm sure i can see autism and autistic traits through my dad's side of my family and am wondering if i have a duel disability. I have motorskill problems amongst other things but am wondering if a family history of autism has not yet been detected. would this lead to me having either of fragile X or autism with fragile X i have also read about astigmatisms and muscularskelletal problems in fragile X but dont know if this is me.
I am new to this group and am searching desperately for anyone who has any experience with this treatment... I am considering putting my finances, time and energy into getting this treatment for myself and my son... My son has severe autism and I have fibromyalgia among other medical issues... Please help...
So, I heard that medical cannabis can treat autism, since I have autism. I looked it up on google and got a trillion good results. I'm going to have a meeting with my doctor because it is a serious concern. The thing I want to know though is, what are usual effectrs of cannabs on autism?
I mean, does it tend to take effect quickly? Will I get naucious? If you could provide me with a list of possible common effects, positive or negative, I'll take it.
As hesitant as I was, 1 week later the anti-depressants seem to be helping my wonderful, troubled high functioning 15 year old. In fact I am thinking of getting some myself!!!. She is constantly laughing (well until her return to school is mentioned!!!), truly believes she can fly (which is taking alot of time and effort to convince her is not the case...she does not have wings). Is smiling, maybe just a little bit too much!!, alarmingly so, and I doubt the Dr will need to increase the dose!!!, otherwise she might just put the flying theory to test, all windows now securel
