Autism and Seizures


Seizures is found among people with Autism, especially for people who are male, 10-19 old.

The study analyzes which people have Seizures with Autism. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 21 people who have Autism from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.

Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
