Initiate Treatment with Naltrexone


The opiate antagonist naltrexone was suggested as a specific treatment for Asperger's disorder. However, double-blind trials have suggested that naltrexone has little efficacy in treating the core social and cognitive symptoms of Asperger's disorder. Whereas the use of naltrexone as a specific treatment for autistic disorder no longer seems to be likely, it may have a role in the treatment of self-injurious behavior. Controlled trials have shown a modest reduction in symptoms of hyperactivity sometimes associated with Asperger's disorder.
