Psychiatrists - using untested drugs on children

Psychiatrists are now prescribing anti-psychotic medications made for adults to children. These anti-psychotic medications have serious side effects such as drowsiness, restlessness, muscle spasms, tremor, dry mouth, blurring of vision, social withdrawal, rapid weight gain, blood complications, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, and Tardive Dyskensia.

This ties in with my May 22 post about children being used for human guinea pigs, as these kids are being treated for "bipolar disorder", when - per the psychiatric manual - bipolar disorder cannot be diagnosed in children as most of the symptoms are those normal for children when they are growing up. These drugs have also had very limited testing, and therefore psychiatrists don't know if they are harming these kids more then they are helping them.

If you would like to do more research on psychiatric drugs, make an account with Yahoo! and ask for alerts on psychiatric drugs and the Food and Drug Administration. A little goes a long way when you are talking about your or your child's sanity.
