The Choice of Medications for Autism by Paul Shattock

Individuals labeled as “autistic” are very different from each other. The differences between them are much greater than they are within the so called “neuro-typical” population. One man’s meat is very definitely another man’s poison.

A particular medication can be very helpful and well tolerated by one person but unhelpful and very harmful for another. Some people with autism benefit dramatically from drugs known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) that are commonly used for treating depression (provided the dose is correct).

For others, especially those with more sever problems, the results can be disastrous.
