Review: Clinical Studies Lacking On Use Of Medications For Older Kids With Autism.

HealthDay (9/25, Gordon) reports, “More and more children are growing up with autism, and although many treatments and interventions are now available, clinical studies on the use of medications in teens and young adults are lacking, according to” a review published online Sept. 24 in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers arrived at this conclusion after reviewing “medical literature from 1980 through 2011 to find clinical trials on drugs for people with autism between the ages of 13 and 30 years old. They found eight studies with at least 20 participants.”
