I think that the meds im giving my son is making him very aggressive. There is no cure for these disorders. we may as well let the kids learn how to deal with thier tics on thier own without the help of meds.I still dont know if i should take my son to a psychiatrist or not.i hear horror stories of parents being forced to medicate thier children.They are just kids and i have found out that I miss my son because he doesnt act the same.he even told me he hears voices inside his head telling him to talk bad about god.Im not sure what that is all about but i dont like it.It seems the meds take away all rational thinking from thier minds.When you think about it we are just slowly poisoning our children to make them mind.But is a challenge to help them deal with thier disorders.maybe medicine isnt the answer anymore for my son..Maybe they just need lots of love from everyone...april

Dear April,

Maybe you are right! Many would agree that medications made their children worse in some ways. That is why an environmental approach to the problem may be very helpful. We have found that addressing allergic factors and nutritional problems has been very rewarding to a significant number of these children allowing them to remain relatively medication free except in some cases. Let's chat more , later.
