#Autism, #Anxiety and Medication: Update 12/16/2012

I wanted to update you on how Elliott‘s doing now that he’s off the anti-anxiety medications.

It’s been about a week since Elliott had his last dose of Tenex. He had not been on it for too long, but long enough to know that it wasn’t the right medication for him. It’s really hard to tell if he’s doing better or not but stopping was the right thing to do.

Currently, Elliott is very moody and still anxious but he’s got a great deal on his plate. I don’t know how well any 6 year old would deal with it all. I will say that he does seem to be a bit less stressed at times.

For right now, Elliott‘s life is medication free and we are working on other ways to help him manage everything. We’re doing a lot of art type things like drawing and crafts. He really seems to respond to that.

Right now, that’s where we stand. We’re taking it one day at a time……….

Is Elliot in any kind of sports or karate lessons or anything like that? That might help. Or maybe music? Just pulling out ideas here.
