    Drug groups to treat the symptoms of autism

    Amman - Although there is still no cure for autism, there are medicines that help the patient to lead a productive life. In addition, if the doctor is following the patient's condition well, the patient may be able to exercise his life normally.


    In addition to the symptoms of autism, it sometimes accompanies other symptoms. The categories of drugs prescribed to treat these symptoms depend on the child's physical and psychological needs.


    According to www.brighthub.com, symptoms associated with autism are common in children with it, and parents often seek advice from doctors.


    It is worth noting that there are many antimicrobial medications and its associated symptoms. Some of these drugs are given not only to children, but also to adults.


    Drugs used in the treatment of autism and associated symptoms include the following:


    Antipsychotics, which include kenoabine, commonly known as Seroquel, and Olanzapine, commonly known as Zyprexa. These drugs help relieve certain symptoms, including aggression, emotional withdrawal and extreme hyperactivity. Its side effects include weight gain and sleepiness. These drugs, which reduce the activity of the neurotransmitter called dopamine in the brain, are somewhat modern and cause little side effects compared to old antipsychotics such as haloperidol, commonly known as halodol.


    - stimulant drugs, which include methylphenidate, commonly known as ritalin, and amphetamine salts, commonly known as emeralds. These drugs work in children with autism as anti-ADHD, which include omission, dizziness, impulsivity and increased mobility. As for their side effects, they include irregular sleep patterns. In some cases, these drugs may increase the excitability and irritability of children and adults.


    Antidepressants are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which include fluoxetine, commonly known as prozac and sertraline, commonly known as zoloft. The group's drugs help children and adults cope with symptoms of depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder by affecting serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that includes mood control. The side effects of these drugs include insomnia and weight fluctuations. Users of this drug group should stay in constant contact with their physician, as they may sometimes increase the symptoms of depression and motivation to commit suicide.


    Anticonvulsants, also known as antiperspirants, include carbamazepine, commonly known as tigritol, and topramate, commonly known as toopamax. These drugs are prescribed for people with autism who have epileptic seizures or need to help stabilize the mood. The side effects of this drug group include headache and nausea.
