psychopharmacological treatments

Treatment
Description
Psychopharmacologic medications might be useful to help with the core behavioral/environmental interventions in children with autism spectrum disorders. Psychopharmacologic medications do not treat autism itself and should be considered only after educational and behavioral interventions are underway. Medications should be used to target specific symptoms, and the symptoms should be measured over time to monitor whether the treatments are worthwhile. Children with autism spectrum disorders are more sensitive to these medicines and more likely to have side effects than other children. Parents should know that many of these medications are being used off-label (at this time, only_risperidone_and_aripiprazole_are approved by the FDA for use in children with autism spectrum disorders).

What are the opinions or thoughts on burzynskis treatment vs. fda approved treatments?

Quackery

FDA treatments are at least monitored for efficacy. Burzynski is a classic quack and his methods and treatments are designed to channel him money but are otherwise ineffective and some even feel harmful. Trying his stuff will delay your getting more proven therapy.

What is the best treatment for metastatic breast cancer? How about alternative treatments?

It depends

Breast_cancer
There is not a "best" treatment, as metastatic breast cancers are different. The best treatment will take into account past treatment, current symptoms, and the subtype of breast cancer (ER, PR and HER2 status) as well as the location of tumors. Usually chemo or biologic therapy is necessary. Alternative treatments like mushrooms may have anti-cancer effects, but more studies are needed.
