Pediatrician 's  Response
hello,
Asperger disorder is characterized by impairment in social interaction and restricted interest/repetitive behaviors. Individuals with Asperger disorder should not have significant delays in cognitive, language, or self-help skills. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development.
exact cause is unknown, although research supports the likelihood of a genetic basis.
There is no single treatment, treatment is aimed at improving symptoms and function.
behavioral therapy is mainstay of therapy.

My daughter is currently taking Paxil for anxiety and severe OCD. She recently found out that she is pregnant. She has been on 30 mg. for about 4years. She was told to take 10 mg. twice a day for a week and then 10 for one week. She could not deal with the change.
What alternative drug could she take that is safe. Her OCD's and anxiety are pretty intense without the Paxil. Thank you for your time.
