There are no drugs except symptomatic ones for autism, only good educational and social behaviour technics there, taught by specially trained teachers.

Expert:  DrVasavada replied 7 months ago.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two drugs for treating irritability associated with the autism (risperidone and aripiprazole).

Expert:  DrVasavada replied 7 months ago.

fluoxetine can ease social difficulties among some people with autism.

Naltrexone, which is FDA-approved for the NIH treatment of alcohol and opioid addictions, can ease disabling repetitive and self-injurious behaviors in some children and adults with autism.
