Children as young as 18 months are now receiving anti-psychotic drugs, despite the fact that the diseases they’re designed to treat rarely develop before adolescence. So why are toddlers receiving these potent drugs? Sadly, one of the key reasons these drugs are used is because of their sedative effect. They’re typically prescribed to control “disruptive” behavior—not to treat severe mental illness.
Granted, the dubious diagnosis of “pediatric bipolar disorder” is in large part responsible for the increased use of anti-psychotic drugs in young children. It is absolutely incomprehensible that there has been such an astounding increase in the diagnosis of childhood mental illness. The only rational explanation is a manipulation of the definition to justify inappropriately drugging our children.
