I wasnt on anti-depressants and my child has autism - more likely to be all the crap that is added into our food. Something is affecting our children. Wish it was something as simple as avoiding anti-depressants whilst pregnant - that be easy to solve!
i just discovered capsaicin under the tongue several times a day stops the rages cold
and i am on meds that aggravate the asd rages massively...
and capsaicin is a vasodilator..works where aspirin non magnesium buffered, does not
did i mention cheep
Couldn't the fact that the mother has brain chemistry abnormalities strong enough to have her take antidepressants make it likely that genetics might play a role in the whole situation? Autism is a broad spectrum diagnosis ailment. Just as depression/bipolar is grouped under one umbrella. One of my best buds is a kid labelled autistic. He is genuine around me because I dont talk down to him. I know he is all there but can't express himself.
This seems like Jenny McCarthy biology. Except no scientist will make commercials about huffing e cigs after railing about immunology.

i have been suffering from asd rages aggravated by heart meds
i got haha, ticked right off at the drs, and decided to replace the useless aspirin with capsaicin
which opens blood flow up and does other good things too
the capsaicin has reduced the aspergers symptoms dramatically over the last few days since i made this discovery
it works on the immune system in the gut where i have discovered the triggers are,
and im just using 1/4 teaspoon of chilly powder 4 times a day...under the tongue for a few minutes then swallowed
there are way better versions of capsaicin out there too, drops would be ideal.

My fits have been kept down to minimum except in super overload times through practice. When I was 23, I learned how to meditate in jujitsu and the first time I emptied my head, it was amazing. I think it's harder for us because the ambient noise of a room can take on the sound of a trumpet blaring but it's possible to learn to tune stimuli out. It just takes a whole lot of practice. It's much like mind based pain control actually because it's basically turning volumes down. Of course, it might work for me because I'm dissociative to boot but it isn't a pill so it's worth a shot, right?
