This study reviewed Kentucky Medicaid claims data for children with autism spectrum disorders to determine psychotropic drug (PTD) use in this population. Children with autism spectrum disorders (ICD-9 code 299.XX) in 3 different age-groups from 2005 to 2008 were identified; PTD use was defined as at least 1 prescription per year. PTD use in all age ranges was higher than in previously reported studies. High PTD use in children between 1 and 5 years is particularly of concern and may reflect perceived inadequacies of comprehensive educational/behavioral services for these children.
