I have a six year old son who has PDD-NOS, ADHD, and a seizure disorder called BRE. He is currently taking meds for his BRE and his ADHD which are Keppra and Metadate CD. I am receiving emails and phone calls from his teachers saying that he is highly anxious at school. He is here at home as well. My question is has anyone used or heard of a successful medication used to relieve Autistic children of anxious tendencies? He bites the skin around his nails which has caused infection, he chews compulsively, he spins, rocks, hand flaps, covers his ears all behaviors which any parent of an autistic child has seen at least once. But these behaviors were controlled for a while by therapy which we had to stop and are now back and interfering with schooling. If anyone has any suggestions they would be welcomed and Appreciated. Thanks in advance.
