The number of powerful psychiatric/anti-psychotic drugs prescribed to England's children has risen by more than half in four years

article in the Independent on Sunday


"The number of powerful psychiatric drugs prescribed to England's children has risen by more than half in four years, government figures have revealed.

GPs in England are handing out prescriptions for anti-psychotic drugs for children as young as seven at the rate of 250 a day, according to figures obtained by The Independent on Sunday.

Latest data compiled for the NHS show that tranquillisers designed to treat serious conditions including schizophrenia in adults were prescribed to young people 57,000 times in 2003. But the total had risen to more than 90,000 by 2006 – a 59 per cent rise in three years. The figures do not include drugs dispensed in hospitals. Experts believe the increase is partly down to early detection and treatment of serious mental health problems in children, but there is also concern they are being used inappropriately to treat psychological and learning difficulties."

In my opinion, this is evil and does great harm and should be prohibited by law. - See also http://aboutsalt.blogspot.com/2008/06/for-years-harvard-child-psychiatrist.html
