Autism Regression And Posibly Seizures

In an otherwise stable autistic boy 13 years of age, recent detioration in behavior manifested by agressiveness. Noted at times of severe agitation to make eye contact and head-butt. Pupils noted to be irregular by 1-2mm,always notice larger on right. Also have observed some ovalness in appearance at times. Otherwise pupils are equal most of the time. Could these be seizure related? What could be the causes of the pupilary changes. Current meds are risperdal,dilantin.Lithium and clonidine.Any insight would be appreciated.Also much hyperactivity.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These are not seizures. These mild changes in pupilary size is related to aggressive behaviour.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
