My 8 yr old Aspie is on medication for his ADHD and for his mood. The meds he takes are making his OCD tendencies come out more. The doctor said that it may happen but he has chewed his nails down to the skin (toenails included.)and now is picking at his skin on his arms and making scabs.The doctor wants to put him on another medicine for this, but how much medicine is too much? I dont want to put him on any more meds than I have to.Is anyone else having issues like this with meds with their child? I really dont want to medicate him more but I dont know what else to do...any Ideas will be greatly appreciated..... Thanks
