Behavior medication 



My seven-year-old son recently had a change in medication for his behavior. He was taking Paxil without positive results. He now is being tried on 25mg Zoloft. Have you seen long-term benefits or effects of Zoloft on people with CdLS? 

Answer of our experts

Yes it does work at times. It is very safe, even long term.
