  • A Systematic Review of Pharmacologic Treatments for School Refusal Behavior. [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Child Adolesc Psychopharmacol 2018 May 09
  • Londono Tobon A, Reed MO, … Bloch MH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Data regarding pharmacological treatments for school refusal are sparse. Most trials in this area were conducted before development of newer antidepressants, were underpowered, and have significant methodological limitations that are characteristic of the time in which they were conducted. This systematic review highlights the need for more trials with newer pharmacologic agents, larger sample sizes, and improved systematic assessments of school refusal and comorbidities. School refusal represents an important functional outcome for many children, especially those with anxiety and depression. Future pharmacologic studies of anxiety and depression in children may benefit from incorporating specific school refusal measures as secondary outcomes.
