Abstract

The management of target symptoms in autistic disorder is challenging. Associated behavioral problems including hyperactivity and impulsivity may respond to risperidone or other agents but are often difficult to control. We describe the successful use of combination atomoxetine and risperidone for control of hyperactivity and impulsivity in an adult individual with autistic disorder.
