Drug therapy of autism spectrum disorders

Svetlana Georgieva, Yana Koleva

Abstract

What role do medications play in the overall treatment of autistic spectrum disorders (ASD)? There have been few controlled trials of medications for this pathology. The identification of such medications awaits a more sophisticated elucidation of the genetic and neurobiological underpinnings of ASD. The aim of this paper is to present a literature review on the variety of drugs used in ASD treatment as well as on the pharmacological effects and advances in the complex treatment of patients with autism.
