Fluoxetine belongs to a class of medications known as the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) which are thought to help in treating repetitive behaviours. Over the last decade, the use of Fluoxetine and other SSRIs in children with autism has become increasingly common, both in Australia and overseas. It is therefore important for us to know that Fluoxetine is effective in treating repetitive behaviours in children with autism.
