Abstract

Furthermore, research has demonstrated that gastrointestinal symptoms can impact drug availability and absorption. In this paper we explore the presence of gastrointestinal symptoms in autism and put forth a call for a formal evaluation of the potential relationship between gastrointestinal symptoms and psychotropic medication effectiveness in individuals with autism.
