Citalopram’s non-effects

Posted Aug 01 2009 12:00am

Citalopram, one of the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) which are usually used to address depression, did not yield beneficial results in a recent study of whether the use of the drug with children and youth with Autism reduced repetitive behaviors. The study, reported by Bryan King and colleagues, included 149 individuals ages 5 through 17 with moderate or severe Autism who were recruited from various parts of the US. Not only did the treated group appear no better than the placebo group, but the children in the Citalopram group were more likely to have adverse outcomes.
