Robert, Jonah's son is Autistic. We had to have his meds adjusted during puberty. We have had some episodes that you describe, mostly occurring at his mom's. There is no way should he come off his meds cold turkey. It needs to be supervised by a physician. These meds can cause some nasty side effects if just stoped. They are controlled substances so he is dependent on him. Detox alone can cause what you describe.

What concerns me the most are the suicidal thoughts. I am going to ask some very specific questions for you because I have been there with Robert.

Why does he want to commit suicide?

Is he suicidial on his meds or off his meds?

If you want to share what meds he is on, I will see what I can find on stopping cold turkey. We were given very specific instructions to not stop all at once.

There is help out there for this. Your answers will help me work with you.
