Antipsychotic Use Doubles In America's Toddlers
Need more evidence that America has lost its soul and that psychiatry has lost its mind? A study published today in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (it's not online yet) asserts that twice as many young toddlers are getting antipsychotics as in the late-1990s. We're talking kids aged 2 to 5, getting drugs which have no approval for their age group.
"In 1999-2001, about one in 1,300 were being treated with antipsychotics. By 2007, that had risen to one in 630, according to Olfson.
"For 5-year-olds, about one in 650 were being treated in 1999-2001. That doubled, to one in 329, in 1997, he noted."
"'It is a worrisome trend, partly because very little is known about the short-term, let alone the long-term, safety of these drugs in this age group,' said study author Dr. Mark Olfson, a professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University in New York City."
If thought leaders are calling this a problem, then why do doctors continue to prescribe these drugs to tots? How much is pharma making off little kids?
couple that with Big Pharma and Medicine targeting the poor and foster kids; as I referred to in recent post on this blog that you may find worth reading

I must ask what we can do at this juncture in our land? Sadly I can see nothing short of an armed revolution will stop these pharma whoring greed mongers @ this point.
The information and crimes are now shining in the light of day, and still no pharma executives are in jail, no doctor have been charged or even had their licenses to practice medicine revoked or suspended, direct to consumer marketing and advertising has not stopped, pay offs and rewards directly to doctors from pharma have not stopped, off labeling market has not curtailed, and with tens of billions upon ten of billions of dollars in profits at stake, no one in our government will step to the plate to save our children.
I challenge every one to stop by your local county mental hospital. You will be astounded at how young the general populations are becoming, and this is only a warning shot fired into ominous night sky. The real carnage hasn't even reared it's true ugly head quite yet with the most fragile and defenseless populations, which are the Toddlers.
These children are being hooked, disabled, labeled, and damaged for life. This is just what pharma and medicine has campaigned for over decades; generation upon generation of infant cash cows to be milked of their very life essence continuously from cradle until coffin.
For all doctors out there that may read this; when an estimated 90% of MD's are on the take "accepting gifts, cash, or both" from pharma, there is no more questions about guilt or causation.
We, as in every citizen are going to pay for these crimes in both monetary cost and devastating human suffering for many decades to come. We can also rest assured the vast majority of our corrupted government representatives know exactly what's happening and have turned their backs upon the citizens of this great land, and will let these horrible crimes against our children, elderly, and poor continue out of their unquenchable lust for greed, money, and power.
I must believe that Thomas Jefferson and like Founding Fathers would have had some fairly choice and ear turning words for every one of us about now. It may very well be far to late for thousands upon thousands of children unfortunately; but you can still make your voice heard and take some form of action.
I am but one lone voice in this internet wilderness, but as more voices unite, as this call grows louder, we all must pray that anything is possible, and we can force a change in the course of our nation.
