I have seven month old son with Down's syndrome he is a bit to young to take anything yet but, I work in a care home with adults who have disabilities,three residents we have do not take medication for their behaviour. Two have vitamin supplements and one of the two has water tablets for water retention in the legs. One is fifty and never taken any medication apart from vitamins and the odd paracetamol. And resident two has water tablets and vitamins. Resident three won't take any. Hope you find this helpful.
