Pharmacological Treatment of Self-Injurious Behavior in Mentally Retarded Persons.
Singh, Nirbhay N.; Millichamp, C. Jane
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v15 n3 p257-67 Sep 1985
The paper evaluates clinical and experimental literature on effects of pharmacotherapy for self-injury. Few general conclusions are drawn mainly due to the small number of studies and general lack of methodological rigor of these studies. However, there was some indication that antipsychotics and antimanics may prove useful in treating self-injury and warrant further investigation. (Author/CL)
