    I don't know of any medications to directly assist with stuttering.  However, individual clients whom also experience anxiety may benefit from anti-anxiety medications prescribed specifically by their medical consultant may have indirect benefits by relaxing their mind & body and thus this may have a positive effect on their speech.

    I would also like to add that, even in school aged children, that anxiety around communnication due to stuttering is observed. Any consistent anxiety behaviours would benefit by early management of a skilled psychologist. A Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach has been demonstrated as a useful tool for managing anxiety in stutterers of all ages
