Abstract

Although there is a proliferating literature on the pharmacotherapy of autism, the results of these studies are often conflicting. A definitive medical intervention for the cove symptoms of autism 12 continues to elude us. In the absence of a definitive research-based pathway for the pharmacotherapeutic treatment of autism, our approach is necessarily clinically based andresearch informed. Common medication side effects also may confound the clinical picture. A major factor in the application of our approach is an awareness of conditions comorbid with autism in an individual patient. These comorbid conditions then serve as a guide in choice of specific drug therapies. Use of medication must be guided by an awareness of habilitative, behavioral, social, administrative, and ethical issues.
