Possible new symptom?

I’ve noticed this week that everytime I say something to my son there is a delay before he responds. Not just here and there, everytime. Also, he’s been quite and only talks when I ask him something. At first I thought it was probably a side affect from the medication but I suspect he isn’t swallowing his meds so it’s probably not that. Has anyone noticed this?

@Cat_Nip :That is pretty typical with my son and I often have to prompt him for answers. `don’t know the cause but I don’t think my son is consciously aware of it. :palm_tree:

My son does this also, very hard to carry on conversations especially on the phone.

My son doesn’t answer half the time, unless I push him. He is non compliant with medications.
