I haven't found anything that reduces stimming. Memantine worked for a month a few years ago. I would expect it to lose efficiency over time because brain always counteracts any receptor agonists or antagonists. In Alzheimers studies, Memantine stopped working after about 6 months. My son still stims. I wrote in My Supplements thread about Phosphatidylserine and cortisol and how that affects stimming and SIBs in my son. I will start looking into his thyroid issues. Hopefully this can address multiple symptoms, SIBs, aggression, stimming, anxiety. There is a famous doctor who treats autistic children by boosting thyroid.
