Non-standard psychoactive drugs, such as vitamins, opiate antagonists, exogenous hormones and herbal medications, are gaining increasing attention in adult and childhood psychiatric disorders. Both patients and practitioners have become more familiar with data supporting or refuting the use of these agents in children. This chapter seeks to synthesize the data on atypical psychopharmacologic strategies which have received some degree of experimental scrutiny.
