Oxytocin nasal spray really helps autism symptoms. My close friend is using it for her five year old daughter. She said that she's benefited a lot from it, especially when they go outside or to someone else's house. Before this little girl would get really scared and upset whenever she encountered a stranger. She used to start yelling and screaming and would become really aggressive.
But since she's started using the nasal spray, she seems less scared and more open to meeting strangers. She doesn't become aggressive anymore, more like curious. And I've noticed that she laughs a lot more now too.
I'm not sure if all of these changes are due to the oxytocin nasal spray but her mom hasn't changed anything else. She's still on the same medications and the same routine. The only change is the spray so I think it works.
