One thought on “Cyproheptadine treatment of autism

  1. I was really glad to come across your informative blog. I was looking for the use of cyproheptadine with autism because I had put my 6 year old son with autism on it for his migraines. I only had him on it for one week (had to stop because it caused diarrhea), but he started giving everyone around him very intense eye contact and is trying to verbalized more and with more attempts at longer sentence structure. Since cyproheptadine is a calcium channel blocker I wondered if it could help those with calcium signaling problems so was searching in that direction until you talked about the mast cells. Very interesting! Would love to hear more about this…thanks for a great post!
