Potential benefits of acne medication for intellectual disabiliites
May 5, 2011
Hopeful treatment for intellectual disabilities. Really interesting article in the Los Angeles Times this week on Mynocycline (a medication used to treat acne) and its potential use to treat fragile X. Of those in the study, 70% of the participants showed improvement in language, behavior, and cognitive function. These are all behavioral issues that have been resistant to improvement through the use of psychiatric medications.
