Children and teenagers with an autism spectrum disorder often have comorbidities that may sometimes be the cause of great suffering and have an impact on daily functioning. Medication can be used to help them and allow them to benefit from strategies implemented for them. During this presentation, we will talk about these comorbidities and the medication groups that may be used. We will also focus on some side effects that are sometimes more pronounced for our children and teenagers with ASD, while maintaining the principle: “most of all do not harm”.
