I don’t think we are qualified Hanna to suggest a medicine for it. My granddaughter was just diagnosed with it. Has been seeing a psychologist who diagnosed it and referring her to a psychiatrist for meds, plus my daughter took her to her PCP. You can’t say you don’t like him taking the meds, if it’s helping him, that’s what is important. Good luck to him. I am sure his doctor will recommend and suggest a medication.

Glad she is getting help now Genlanco. I will ask the doctor to start him in a low dose and see how he reacts. You are right all meds have side effects. I still have my anxiety but I decide to practice light yoga and meditation relaxing my body and telling my self it's I am okay. I start eating healthy and no sugar pop or gluten and junk food. Stay cool today and I talk to my friend in florida she said Anna are you ready for hot all year. It's really hot there yesterday she said. I told her I am born ready for warm weather chica. hugs to you Genlanco and enjoy your coming weekend... 😍
