I am not an ALS patient myself, but I lost my son's father (who was only 43 yrs. old) to ALS two years ago. He had been taking an anti-anxiety medication (not sure which one) for a few years, when he was first diagnosed. In fact, at first his doctors thought his symptoms were caused by the anti-anxiety meds he was on. At that time, it did cross my mind that the medication could actually be linked to his fate, but the thought passed.

His young son is left to deal with the fear of his future, as we don't know if this disease was caused by a family gene. I would like to know if this medication was the cause so I could warn my son and give him some relief in knowing this disease may be preventable.
