I have a question that I would like answering if anybody could help.
I am on a waiting list for an Autism Screening assesment which has been about 6 months now. Just recently I went to the doctors because my anxiety has been bad for about 9 months but I've always suffered with it from childhood in waves on and off.
I have recently been prescribed medication and now I wonder if this could hamper any future Autism assesment or not? Has anybody been assessed whilst on medication and if so did it affect the outcome in any way?
I was assessed while on medication and passed/failed the assessment. Diagnosed autistic needing LVL 1 help so couldn't have been assessed as any more severe than I was.
I'm on antidepressants and atarax. And a load of other stuff that's not relevant to the question.
I was on mirtazapine when I was assessed and passed with flying colours (synaesthesia).
Thank you both for your feedback. I was on and off Citalopram for years and just recently started Sertraline. Just glad to know it won't affect the outcome of diagnosis whether it be I have an ASD or not.
They ask enough questions about the way you think and things you have done in your life that I think they get a good idea of who you are.
