Hi doctor,

My son is 5 years old. He was delayed in speech. Now, he started talking, but he is not clear. I consulted a doctor, and he suggested Sizodon 0.5 every day for tics. Yesterday, his preschool skills and LD were evaluated, and they said he has LD. Is there any problem with the above medicine? Does he suffer from any symptom of autism?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your son is showing delayed milestone. He may have autism.

Tablet Sizodone contains Risperidone that is centrally acting anticholinergic drug. It has its own side effects, but you can definitely use it if there are tics. It should be taken after consultation with a neurologist.

Also, your child should be encouraged or stimulated to take an interest in learning and sports.

Such children have special training programmes like Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children (TEACCH), and sensory integration.
