Deadly AntiPsychotics Approved for Children?

The FDA – or at least its advisory panel – has lost its collective mind. Or maybe they're so enamored by Big Pharma and its big money that they see nothing the very lives of our children.In a crushingly disappointing decision, the FDA advisory panel has voted to approve three dangerous – sometimes deadly – drugs for use in our children. Even though these drugs are known to increase the risk of weight gain, diabetes, high cholesterol, and DEATH. (And those are just a few of the life-threatening problems linked to them.)Based on results in ADULTS, the three (potentially) lethal drugs – Seroquel, Zyprexa, and Geodon – all come with black box warnings, and an alarming list of side effects and adverse event reports. These drugs should be pulled from the markets, not given to children.Bottom line: If the doctor wants to prescribe one of these drugs for your child, find another --Michele
