Hi Nick, I can’t remember figures for the weight gain but it was significant in a very short period of time. Our son went from slim and active to obese and breathless very quickly. However, given how the tics and jerks ruined the quality of his life it was the lesser of the two evils. Our home environment didn’t help as we have two autistic boys and our other son eats very little. He takes a lot of persuading, hence there was always food around that could be ‘hoovered’ up. If your son is in a more structured environment with regular mealtimes you may be better able to stay on top of it. Dave.
