My daughter that is nine years old. She has autism and she is currently on Ritalin la 10mg.She has been on it for 6 months.Now she has been rocking a whole alot and talking to oneself . I took back to the neurologist and he prescribe clonidine with ritalin. I am afraid to give her both medications. Is it safe for a child to take both? If not what are the symptoms for taking both at the same time? Are their signs to look for?

My son was put on Clonadine with his ritalin for anxiety.  The Clonadine wiped him out!  He was a zombie and could barely function.  If she is nine, 10 mg of ritalin is pretty low.  Couldn't she take Concerta?  It is a time release ritalin.  

Good luck and God bless.
