A friend has an 11 year old twin son who has Aspergers and has been diagnosed with Pathological Demand Avoidance. His doctor is considering givibg him Abilify. Has anyone had experience with this drug for an 11 year old? The doctor said it is the only drug approved by the FDA for people on the sprctrum. My daughter, twice his age, was given it several years ago. It was like a miracle at first with very positive and immediate benefits, but over time she had a shaking leg, mouth movements, gained alot of weight and didn't feel like herself . They side effects could be permanent, she she got off of it. Does anyone have any other experience?
