Has anyone used these prescriptions for their son or daughter? My son Jordan is taking Lexapro to help him eat. He has sensory issues and texture issues; he smells everything before he eats it. The doctor seems to think the medicine will help him try new food, but I am skeptical. I think he is on the autism spectrum; going to discuss it with the doctor next week. I have put together plenty of evidence and made a long list of concerns. Sorry to ramble. Just want to know if anyone has had any side effects. My son seems to be hyperactive while on them. He cannot be still for anything and the teacher seems to notice as well.
