Treatments / Medicines
Although there are no standard medicines in the treatment of autism, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests targeting the main one or two target behaviors. Medicines that are sometimes used to treat behaviors related to autism include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and antipsychotic medicines. Selective serotonin helps with depression, anxiety, and obsessive behaviors. SSRIs have side effects, such as weight gain, insomnia, and increased agitation. Although these side effects may sound bad, they can't really compare to those of antipsychotic medicines.
