      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   Regards,   The mod/admin team

anyone here use clarocet junior?

6 posts in this topic

I am looking at complementary therapy to help Js ADHD and Anxiety and came across this product, they do other products for adults too but this one is for children, and wonder if anyone here has heard of it, and has anyone tried it? if so what was your opinion, it has a host of ingrediants that help dopamine so I think I am going to give it a trial with J going back to school soon.

 

If I am allowed I can put in the link or pm me.

Hi J's mum...

 

thanks for asking :). If it's a brand name product rather than something available in 'generic' form then a link's not possible, but anyone interested can, as you suggest, PM for more info...

Have no personal knowledge of this product, but hopefully someone else might have. Again, if it's a brand name product, please PM you expriences rather than posting directly.

My daughter takes Clarocet Junior and it has helped her considerably with her OCD and anxiety. She is also managing to concentrate better at school and for the first time ever is feeling confident.

Hi,

 

Never heard of this - - but assume you can buy over the counter - interested if it helps with anxiety etc and going to google in a minute - are there any side effects and can it be used if you have epilepsy (I know I've read somewhere that certain oils etc shouldn't be taken).

 

Many thanks,

Jb

I know this thread is very old but I too can say that my 11 year old who started high school, a fortnight ago, Aug 2012, appears to have benefitted considerably whilst on Clarocet junior.

 

He has Aspergers and has OCD and severe anxiety. Neither of which have been major since taking these tablets. He appears so much more relaxed and less anxious. Its wonderful. ahe has been worrying sick about high school for nearly 10 months resulting in a referral to our local CAMHS servoce where we are waiting for a Cognitive behavioural therapy course. In the meantime I have tried this and things are improving and he is happier... Thank God.... Poor soul, its been torture this past year for him..

 

Hopefully he will continue to benefit

We were giving our son clarocet junior - it took a little time to kick in but we were definitely noticing a difference HOWEVER they taste disgusting - he is just 7yrs old - he therefore started refusing to take it and it was causing massive meltdowns in itself - he can't swallow tablets so we were having to crush - they discolour and flavour food - he really was struggling so we have had to stop and we are back to square one with stress, anger and anxiety levels at a huge high! We tried it in drinks but it just floated on top - we tried mixing it with chocolate (not great I know but we were willing to try anything), we have also tried in a spoonful of jam as he loves jam but the taste was still too strong!

 

Does anyone have any other ideas of how to give it to him or if there is an alternative that will could give instead - we found that fish oils made him more hyper!

 

Thanks x
