Gringras, Paul
Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, v4 n3 p229-47 Sep 2000
This article discusses the evidence behind two approaches to psychopharmacological management in children with autism: selecting and treating target symptoms or treatment or curing the primary social impairment underlying autism. The effectiveness of stimulants, antidepressants, melatonin, naltrexone, fenfluramine, and secretin is appraised. The need for multicenter trials is emphasized. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
