Big Pharma’s War On Our Children: 1 Million Kids Under Age 6 On PSYCHIATRIC Drugs

What makes this even more despicable is that total absence of long term safety studies when psychotropics are used in pre-school children.

In the United States, there are one million children under the age of six on psychiatric drugs. This number is particularly disturbing, considering the horrifying side effects and ineffectiveness of a good number of these types of harmful drugs.

One in six Americans overall regularly take some type of medication in this category. However, children are now being swept up in Big Pharma’s desire to make money, not improve health. Mental health watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights is drawing attention to the concerning fact that more than a million kids younger than six in our nation are currently taking these psychiatric drugs.

According to Natural News, around half of these children are four to five years old and an incredible 274,804 of them are younger than a year old. That’s right: babies are being given psychiatric drugs. The number rises for toddlers aged two…

    • Kenneth, it makes absolutely no sense to me. Before I retired we only prescribed medication for ADHD in school aged children when everything else had been tried and there was no other way to keep them from being expelled from school. The stimulants we prescribed inhibited appetite, weight gain and growth so we did everything possible to avoid prescribing them. We were unaware, at the time, of the role of dysfunctional gut bacteria in ADHD and other emotional disorders. If I had it to do over again, I would have prescribed propbiotics.

  1. This is all very sad. But unfortunately for the children who are medicated in this way, if their parents are medicated, then it stands to reason the parents feel no need to keep these types of medications from their children. And since people don’t even bother to read anything anymore beyond jumbled text characters on their smartphone screen, many of them may not even be aware of the harmful side effects of these dangerous medications and doctors are certainly not pointing them out to their patients and I know this for a fact.

    I know that when I am handed a medication, I read everything about it before taking it and if the harmful side effects out way the benefits of taking the medication, I won’t take it. I guess many are not doing this.

    Also, I don’t understand the explosion of ADHD(Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) because it was certainly not prevalent in my day. Could it be that rambunctious kids are giving this diagnosis or could it be that children are getting this disorder from the foods they eat, the water they drink, and the air they breathe? If it is a fact that children who grow up in apartments are far likely to develop asthma and other respiratory illnesses than children who grow up in single family homes, then it is not a stretch to believe that their environment may be causing them additional health problems. I wonder has any research been done on this since research did determine that second hand smoke causes cancer in people and, again, for those who live in multi-family dwellings, this is an extreme issue because so many people are smoking so many different products that produce smoke, i.e., cigarettes, crack pipes, weed, etc., and this smoke seeps through walls and into vents and spreads to other units.

    Since America has been labeled, “The Pill Popping Country of the World,” this does not surprise me. Not in the least. But still, I cannot imagine why toddlers would need psychiatric drugs. This, I just cannot figure out.

    One thing I am wondering about though. What treatment is used on babies born addicted to crack and heroin especially seeing as how we now have an epidemic of heroin addicts?

  2. The problem with using stimulants in ADHD is a complicated question, Shelby. According to the diagnostic criteria, ADHD is a disorder of impaired concentration. The problem with using stimulants to treat it is that stimulants in low doses will help anyone’s concentration – so this particular treatment isn’t at all specific for the disorder. My mother (who ultimately became addicted to it) used to take dexedrine when she played bridge because it improved her sore. And when I was in Seattle, I had parents bringing their teenagers to me to prescribe stimulants to improve their math scores (and had a complaint filed against me when I refused).

    I’m pretty sure toddlers are being prescribed stimulants and other psychotropic drugs because their parents can’t control their behavior and insurance companies won’t pay for for parent training – and because drug companies are illegal pushing the off label use of these medications in children (they all do it and when they’re caught the FDA makes them pay a ridiculously small fine).

    As I mentioned to Kenneth above, I think kids with these types of behavioral problems should be treated with probiotics (and Vit C and D and omega 3 oil) in the first instance and their parents offered free parenting training.
