Hi Doctor! My son, who is 17 years old, is been prescribed Oleanz 5 mg for his mood disorder. He is diagnozed with Aspergers too and was on Fluovoxomine 200 mg for 3 years now. The doctor has suspected mood disorder now and has reduced the Fluovoxomine from 200 to 100 and is now giving him Oleanz 5mg with Epilex Chrono 500 (2 times). He was on respiradone during last week but the doctor changed this to Oleanz this week because of his nose block side effect. My son is getting angry often for the past 4 or 5 days with the tendency to be unreasonable and agressive. There is a kind of desperation and helplessness in his eyes. I am worried. Are the mood disorder tablets causing this to him? Will these symptoms come down?
