I was just wondering whether Ritalin, Strattera, Wellbutrin, or Edronax are of any use in the contex of Asperger's or autism.
I'm particularly thinking about the hyperactivity, agitation and bodily restlessness as well as racing thoughts.
anyone on these with success?

Possibly Aspie (diagnosed by an autism expert, doc moves abroad, forced to change docs and all say it's schizophrenia NOS or schizo-affective disorde or personality disorders. initial doc was a colleague of uncle Simon btw. you do the math.). (edit: by Uncle Simon I mean Simon Baron Cohen. Just to clear things up.)
