In brief: Yes and no
It depends on the cause of stuttering.
An evaluation by a speech/language pathologist and a developmental pediatrician should help chart a treatment course for a child with this problem.

The possible casues of stuttering need to be fully evaluated. If anxiety is a prominent part of the picture, medications may be helpful in decreasing the level of anxiety.

In brief: Depends
The need or benefit from medication would depend on the cause of the stuttering along with what makes it worse.
Medications are not usually a primary treatment for stuttering. However, if a high level of anxiety is present, medications may help to decrease stuttering by decreasing anxiety. Speech therapy would probably be the primary treatment.
