Title: The treatment of Anxiety in Autism:

I have found that Anxiety is a very common problem with Autistic kids, even the high functioning Asperger’s. We always like to start with natural supplements first: I have found that
5 hydroxy tryptophan( serotonin precursor)  to be very helpful as well as GABA (dopamine precursor). Both of these are raw materials to make  feel good calming neurotransmitters.

Then next I like to add Theanine, which is an amino acid from Green Tea
Finally, high doses of Inositol powder usually does the trick

In very rare cases, we have to go to pharmaceutical agents: Tenex seems to be the drug of choice. It is a beta blocker that seems to cut down on the flight or fight response. Of course, all this should be done under the care of a good DAN (Defeat Autism Now ) doctor.
