Hi, I'm new to this site, as I see many others are. Both of my children have Asperger's and ADHD. I've had very good results using Concerta to help with the ADHD, but have been trying to get some help with the Asperger's part. We've been trying Seroquel for several months in varying dosages and times throughout the day. But the only effect I've seen is the sleepiness, which is good for night time, but I got similar results with melatonin. I haven't seen any reduction in the Asperger's syndrome. The children's psychiatrist seems quite adamant that this medication helps with the symptoms of Asperger's, but I'm not sure whether to insist on stopping or keep trying it. One one hand, I really enjoy the quirkiness of both kids, just as they are. I've gotten endless comments on what interesting and entertaining kids they are. But on the other hand, I do find myself feeling overwhelmed and frustrated at times. Any feedback?
