About

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a life-long neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by qualitative abnormalities in reciprocal social interactions and patterns of communication, and by a restricted, stereotyped, repetitive repertoire of interests and activities. The use of medications in adolescents and young adults with ASD is extremely common. However, few data address the effectiveness and harms of medications specifically in this population. The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy and safety of intranasal ketamine with dexmedetomidine in children with ASD.
