Brief Answer: IQ will not improve with medications Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Your daughter is 19 year old and the IQ of the patient may not improve further. Moreover no medication can improve the IQ. Its only her adaptive skills that can help her further and this requires intensive occupation rehabilitation. You can visit CMC as its a good institute but try to continue your treatment at your local place as it will require frequent follow-ups. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
