|What medications are effective for FASD?
This is a topic of great debate. Having FASD does not automatically mean that the person needs prescription medications. Because FASD has many neurological manifestations, a physician may suggest one or more medications that are used for similar neurological conditions. FASD is often accompanied by one or more comorbid (co-existing) conditions. Medications may be given to treat those conditions. (ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, epilepsy, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Tourette Syndrome, and other disorders may be comorbid with FASD.) Talk with the appropriate specialist to determine what is right for your child.
