I have an almost 20 year old DS with ASD lvl 1 and severe social anxiety that has impacted every area of his life. He started lovan aged 10, and the difference was awesome. A slight hiccup when he started high school, but an increase in dose (he had grown!) had him back functioning again. Mid year 11 he started sliding down hill, then dropped out of school due to debilitating anxiety. He decided he didn't need lovan
. Ended up on a different SSRI, plugged away for 18ish months while he hid in his room. In the last 9 months of being back on lovan, he has got his P's, a fulltime job (with exDH, but still very hard as we have not be together for 16 years), and can make some phone calls and enter some shops without coaching and company. Isn't up to going out with friends yet, but he will when he's ready. He says he does want to one day.
DD 18...she takes twice as much as her brother. I won't go into her issues here to respect her privacy (DS doesn't mind), but I can sleep now not worrying about her. She also drives and works.
DDog! Takes the same dose as DD. We can now leave without her taking our back door off. She still is nervous and shaky when people come over, but the fear aggresion has gone.
No regrets here.
