New Publication: “Rating of the Effectiveness of 26 Psychiatric and Seizure Medications for Autism Spectrum Disorder: Results of a National Survey”. 

This paper covers data from 505 autism families, and is part of a larger national survey we are conducting. Read the article here.

For families and physicians we think Tables 2 and 7 will be most helpful. Table 2 has ratings for each medication, including overall benefit score, most common symptoms benefited, and overall adverse score and most common adverse effects. Table 7 lists what treatments were reported to be most effective for each of 19 symptoms that commonly occur in people with ASD. Note that the scores on these tables are averages, and individuals may respond differently.
