Prenatal Exposure to Antidepressants and Autism Spectrum Disorders

Participants were identified via the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program in Northern California. A total of 298 children with ASD and 1,507 children with typical development were included in the study.

Antidepressants were classified into three groups: SSRIs, dual-action antidepressants, and tri-cyclic antidepressants.
