Medications have side effects - Weighing risk versus benefits for Autism management

Medications are not a cure for Autism. They only serve as a tool in certain doctor advised severe situations, to help your child engage in therapy, effectively. However, all medications come with a cost and present side effects. It is good to be mindful of side effects to ensure medications are not consumed on a long term basis. Do not hesitate to ask your doctor or read about the medication being prescribed, and understand their benefits and side effects for the short or long term.
