So we went to see the Developmental Ped who is the big man around here for dx (we already have one but we had to go to see him anyway) and get ready for this......he says Ette has Autism.....Oh the shock....I said well we've known that for quite some time now and are really just here to talk about meds.....Ette only sleeps a couple of hours a night...and also meds for hyperactivity......but he just wanted to tell me about autism and how he expects life to turn out and how hard its going to be....and on and on and on......and after an hour of this I though this man is crazy....so I stared to interupt and ask questions of my own ....I really felt I had no choice....Ette had no desire to sit in a tiny room with no toys for 2 hours especially when he knows theres a huge play area of fun right outside the door.....so We got a RX for a sleep med and have to go back in two months and hope hes big enough for a hyperactivity med....hes only 4 and weighs about 40 lbs......so my question to you today is what are your kiddos on that work? I know they have ADD med but what are hyperactivity meds? .....he made it sound like there was a big difference.....we currently arent taking anything.....I take that back I take alot of tylenol......but I would like to hear some parent praise of meds before we start filtering through....I have a feeling hes not going to tell me alot about what he prescribes...

Now I'm 20 years old and my weight...
