My daughter had been on respiradal for about a month no changes wat so ever hoeever she did complain sbout hving stiff neck.i contacted her doctor and he switched her to serioquil(however its spelled) she is nine and has asd and odd im just not understanding how shes able to over power all these meds and there is no changes in her behavior.i hate she is a medicaid recepient and we are in nc cause these doctors and the care we recieve isnt as productive as my friends with a lovely income and better insurance.i just dont knw its stressing her dad and i out so bad we are loosing or selves nothing weve done is working and she dosent qualify for certain services and everything tht would seemingly be productive is out of our income bracket.#jesustakethewheel

What are your daughters symptoms?  Is it hyper activity?  Wanting to know more so we can give you some advice to further help you :)  Not sure if you have tried the gluten free, casien free diet?  No Gluten, No dairy can make a big difference in how our children feel with Autism, hard for them to digest and can cause so many behavioral issues.  ((HUGS))

I cant believe that because of income you can only assess different medications that as best arnt that good,

as apposed to better meds that actually work if you are of a better income. Unbelievable. In australia we would have a situation wherebyt a lower income person would get meds subsidised heavilly..ie $6 a script. Our health system is a lot better here (australia). Thankgod we live here.

My son's Doctor Jerry Kartzinel said that one thing to remember is kids on the autism spectrum don't have a placebo effect. Meds either work or they don't. When they don't work, it is important to return to the doctor and follow up. Prescription meds have some serious side effects, so it is never worth giving them unless they are effective. 

Diet is REALLY important. It can improve so very many symptoms for so many, including the ones you describe. My 20 year old son had a recent event where avoiding gluten and sugary desserts wasn't worth the trouble and we wanted to attend , so I already decided I would take the fallout. Sure enough, he was very agitated and angry after his bath time that night, and it took 2 hours longer for him to settle down and go to sleep after his bath. He loves his bath, and usually transitions to bed without any angry outbursts. He was right as rain in a couple of days. 

Diet matters...
