An update: Adverse reaction data for alternative therapies for autism?

24 Jan

With apologies for how long this took to put online: Last September I wrote an article Adverse reaction data for alternative therapies for autism? In it I pointed out how the Autism Research Institute (ARI) had a different standard for reporting adverse reactions for FDA approved drugs and for altnerative therapies. Jane Johnson graciously participated in the conversation and saw that the web page in question was changed. The page now includes this paragraph:

If your son/daughter experiences side effects from taking prescribed medications, please contact the FDA at: http://www.fda.gov/medwatch. Since supplements may also lead to side effects, please report them to: http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/Alerts/ucm111110.htm. You can also call: 1.800.FDA.1088 (1.800.332.1088) to report adverse effects associated with prescription drugs and supplements.

I greatly appreciate the change and again apologize for taking so long to acknowledge it here.

    I don’t have any experience or ideas with prescribed medications leading to autism.
    Is that really possible?
