      abilifly is a bi-polar drug, I don't know if it's used for autistic kids normally or not, but my youngest who is bi polar is suppose to take that and when he does it really helps him.

      I joined this group for the money tips. However, I have an autistic son as well. My son has been taking clonidine for seven years.

      Have you seen any side effects from the medication what about abilify? Thanks for your information.

      remember exactly when. Matt was on clonidine for about 14 years.
