In brief: No Cure
If you mean to cure, no.
To alleviate symptoms, sometimes yes. For example there are medications to help insomnia. Also aggressive behavior. Check with your pediatrician for help.

In brief: Autism medication
There is no medication for autism.
The best treatment is therapy. But sometimes medication is given for some of the other conditions associated with autism such as- hyperactivity, aggression, disruptive behavior.

In brief: No but
There are medications that can help some symptoms or problems that people with autism have.
Abilify (aripiprazole) and Risperdal are specifically approved by the fda for children and adolescents with autism to help with aggression or other disruptive behaviors. Sometimes stimulants and blood pressure medicine like Clonidine are used to help hyperactivity and sometimes anxiety medicaments are used for anxiety.

Be aware, though, that people who have autism can also be very sensitive to medication and sometimes the best treatment is behavioral management

Not really.Only for coexisting symptoms.Be sure that your child sees an occupational therapist to address Sensory Processing issues .Also a behavior specialist to help cope with daily social issues.IPADS have helped autistic children with their communication-express their needs,their wants and it make them feel GREAT!
