The FDA, children, and drugs

“For decades, scores of doctors, government officials, journalists, and others have extolled the benefits of psychiatric medicines for children.

GENERATION RX presents “the rest of the story” and unveils how this era of unprecedented change in Western culture really occurred –

and what price has been paid by our society.” source: Generation Rx

It’s really a powerful movie – shocking and real, yet we let this abuse of medicine continue.

Maybe one day we’ll return to society’s roots of caring for our children.

Parents need to have second opinions and other options presented to them before giving the green light for

their children to become drug addicts.

Communities need to become better advocates for children in foster care, and those who live in underprivileged environments,

because they become easy targets for powerful drug companies.

With 6 million children in the U.S. on psychiatric medications, society will be on-edge.

And finally, the act of diagnosing a 2-year-old with bi-polar disorder is not only barbaric, but insane!
