peppermintpatty Posted November 23, 2006 Share Posted November 23, 2006 NOTE TO MODS: If you think this post would be more appropriately placed somewhere else, by all means feel free to move it. The link below is an article in today's New York Times discussing the issue of putting kids on psychiatric cocktails--i.e., three or more meds. SUMMARY (in case you don't feel like reading the whole thing): In this corner, we have parents of children who are on a shitload of meds and they swear that their kids wouldn't be able to function without them. And in the other corner, we have the medical establishment saying there's little evidence that 2-drug combos work for kids and absolutely NO evidence suggesting that 3 or more would be effective.
