Sensitive and heated debates continue amongst the medical community, caregivers, school officials, and peers as to whether or not it is beneficial or ethical to prescribe antipsychotic drugs to children. Studies have shown that children can develop worsening symptoms after taking antipsychotic drugs, thereby leading to newly developed illnesses. On the other hand, studies have also shown some benefits as well. I’d like to know your thoughts. What do you think? How young is too young? Should the doctor be treating the symptoms, not just the diagnosis?
If you have time, I’d like to hear from you by participating in the below poll and leaving a comment at your leisure.
Thanks to all and be well!
