Clonidine...so it has come to medication. FML
Our daughter had follow up with her developmental ped and she has been prescribed a drug called Clonidine. We discussed another drug but that one was too aggressive and would mess with her liver and subject her to regular blood tests for liver function so that is off the table for now. Doc also griped about the hours she gets for school and thinks we may have to get a education attorney to dispute her IEP since they do not allow for a full time schedule (she recommend 20-25 hrs a week of one on one instruction.) DD will go to a facility for speech therapy after her Feb 1st evaluation. Apparently, o ur state is not a great state as far as autistic children education. She even suggested we move to another location because she believes DD will continue to need a level of intervention and support she is not likely to get in her current school system unless we successfully sue the school district and they pay for private placement (in a school for Autism) or before it gets that far, they are compelled to meet the medical professional recommendation regarding her instruction.
Anyone relate or know anything about this Clonidine? This is very discouraging.
