My grandson has just been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.  Previously he was diagnosed with PDD.  He has numerous symtoms (symptoms).  He is very unpredictable and suddenly can get extremely upset and throw things and sometimes hits his mother.  He has many tics and also handflaps.  He likes to wear his cap regardless of the weather and doesn't like to make eye contact.  He is very bright and loves the computer.  He doesn't like outdoor games but likes to swim.  He is aware that he has a problem and says so.  

My daughter is concerned that some of the behavour could be 'learnt' behavour from when he was on other drugs. How does one know what is 'learnt' behavour? What drugs would you prescrible for my grandson?    Could the wrong drugs be responsible for his behavour?  

If a 'normal' person is given drugs could the drugs cause the symptoms that my granson exhibits?

I no of no pharmasutical drug that could do that unless the child already has some kind of problem the meds could make worse or change some how. I think that he should get some therapy for sensory and emotional. one of my friends with asperger's had the same problem when he was little
