The Myth of Brain Chemical Imbalance

All I can say is, ‘Are you okay with this?’:

  • 274,000 babies aged 1 and younger were given psychiatric drugs: Of these, 249,699 were on anti-anxiety meds like Xanax; 26,406 were on antidepressants such as Prozac or Paxil, 1,422 were on ADHD drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall, and 654 were on antipsychotics such as Risperdal and Zyprexa.
  • In the toddler category (2- to 3-year-olds), 318,997 were on anti-anxiety drugs, 46,102 were on antidepressants, 10,000 were prescribed ADHD drugs and 3,760 were on antipsychotics.
  • Among children aged 5 and younger, 1,080,168 were on psychiatric drugs

I hope your answer is no. Please if you or someone you know are on psychiatric drugs, talk to your prescribing doctor and do NOT go off the meds on your own.
