Hello! My brother has stuttering problem. He tried several speech therapies but with no significant improvement. Actually, I notice he speaks more slowly and has more control over his speech which makes his speech more fluently then before, but this is still not satisfactory. Is there a drug treatment for stuttering?

Hello! Drug introduction in the stuttering treatment should be considered very carefully. The drugs that are usually used are actually anti anxiety agents that are approved only for short-term treatment (not more then six to eight weeks). It is important to know than such drugs have a wide variety of side effects. Sometimes is beneficial to use the drug during the first few weeks of a stuttering therapy program and then reduce the dosages as the patient progresses in therapy. The effects of long-term use are unknown.

Hi there,
Stuttering is a condition that can affect anybody. It is characterized by speech problem but in some cases speech problem can be accompanied with rapid eye blinking, tremors of the lips or jaw. Have you noticed any of these conditions in your brother? How severe was his stuttering? The fact is that medication that is used to treat stuttering often has many side effects and it can not be used as a long term solution. I know that there are some electronic devices that might help your brother with his condition. Has he considered using any device to help him solve his problem? Maybe doctor suggested something similar to him during therapies?

All the best,
Danella
