AD/HD stimulant therapy and autistic kids

After both my daughters started Ritalin (one has AD/HD, the other is autistic with AD/HD tendencies), I started researching to find out what the hell they were taking.

I used to be one of those parents who said, no matter what, my kid is not going on Ritalin.

Now I take it too. I had to jump through more hoops than my kids did, but I do better at my job, better at my writing, and experience a dramatic reduction in anxiety, all thanks to Ritalin.

If anyone wants to know anything about AD/HD and/or parenting an austistic kid, I'll do my best to answer your questions.
