The CDC currently estimates 1 in 59 children have Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD. Children with ASD have problems with social communication, irritability, repetitive behaviors, impulsivity, temper tantrums, and a high caregiver burden. The only medications approved by the FDA for symptoms of ASD are aripiprazole and risperidone. Both of these are used to reduce irritability but have short-term and long-term side effects.
