I've been struggling with my 9 year old with Asperger's bladder problems and sleep issues for years. I am only now beginning to think they might be related. My husband thought that maybe it's the medication he's been taking (focalin xr). I do believe that can effect his sleep pattern, but he's had bladder control problems on and off since before he was on medication. But, this past week he didn't have the focalin and still had some trouble sleeping. I'm not sure what to do. Is there some other disorders that mimic autism that includes the symptoms of bladder control insomnia and ADD?
