Aspergers and Medication

There are no approved medications to treat Aspergers Syndrome (AS) directly.  Some medications can be used to mitigate symptoms including anxiety, mood regulation, and obsessive compulsive behaviors.

Prior to placing your child on any medication you should make sure that:

  1. The medication has been test and approved for use in pediatrics
  2. The medication is NOT being used off label but ONLY for what it has been approved
  3. Try and obtain the name brand of the medication and not the generic
