I'm sure there are differences in how individuals with autism respond to psychiatric medications.

However, I don't think we know enough about the neurobiology of autism to create a model of which meds may work better or worse.

As RJ mentioned, there are a few meds approved for behavioral symptoms of autism, however, these are mainly used to control negative behaviors.

I think at this stage, doctors pretty much just treat the symtpoms as they would other disorders.

Anecdotally (from reading pubmed) drugs with some degree of 5-ht2 antagonism seem to be effective for certain symptoms. Mirtazapine and risperdal come up quite a bit in terms of managing certain symptoms.
