Over-the-counter (OTC) medications are used by various populations as an adjunct to help improve various aspects of life, such as sleep cycles, disease prevention, and mood. The purpose of this study is to compile all of the available data from human trials of over-the-counter medications used in patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). OTCs have been used in the treatment of ASD to minimize social impairments, suppress repetitive behaviors, and enhance quality of sleep to improve daytime behaviors. Ultimately, the main objectives of this project are to educate pharmacists and the public (both patients and their families) about the role of over-the-counter medications in the treatment and management of ASD.
