Please supply links that you refered to on this post!! I am VERY interested and have appts all week regarding these issues!!! ' thanx! I would really push your sons doctor to run immune/viral panels. With all the research coming out on autoimmunity in Tourettes,etc. The link with viruses in bi-polar,and childhood onset schizophrenia(COS), and the gastrointestinal problems in autism spectrum.(the NIMH considered children with COS under 7yrs as autistic) If you don't have the links for all of the research, let me know. I would definitely print out alot of the info and take it to your doctor. If this is what your son is dealing with, the medications they are using are not going to stop him from ending up with permanent damage. I'm not trying to scare you. But to make you aware that when he goes through maturation 13-18yo,(IF he has this disease process) it is being documented at the NIMH that they are losing brain volume. This is not reversible, it is permanent damage. ------------------ Rusty is 10, ADHD,ODD, Tourettes - tics and RAGE seizures, Gastro issues, Bi-Polar, Intermittant Explosive Disorder, possible Schizophrenia &/or Psychosis, currently on Risperdal Wellbutrin,Depakote and Tegretol.
