He would just like to be cuddled non-stop. He is almost 8 and is still like a little boy who wants to be with mum all the time and if mum has to do something else or goes out he becomes anxious and plucks himself.

Yes, I think he is a bit anxious and edgy at times.
You said at the beginning that he was hyperactive. Enigma will obviously know a lot more about it than I do, but to me this suggests that his mental chemistry is revved up in general and he might be pumping a lot of adrenaline.

What do these meds have to do with the respiratory system?
I had wondered about that too. I've never heard of the sensitive respiratory system being a problem with anything but airborne toxins (fumes).

I wonder if this is separation anxiety rather than hyperactivity? I think meds would be beneficial, but it also sounds like he could use some better coping skills for when he has to be on his own. Does he play with anything independently? I'm wondering if you could use some behavioral strategies like you might for taming/other training, but instead reward/reinforce independent play. That might help him learn some healthier alternatives to plucking.

I wish I had a walk-in aviary (you know, like those you have to pay for to enter! They are so cool. Really huge, and the birds can fly like outside and release energy, but at the same time they can't fly away.
