    Huge increase in anti psychotic drugs for American children

    MSNBC has this report:

    The annual number of children prescribed anti-psychotic drugs jumped fivefold between 1995 and 2002, to an estimated 2.5 million, the study said. That is an increase from 8.6 out of every 1,000 children in the mid-1990s to nearly 40 out of 1,000.

    But more than half of the prescriptions were for attention deficit and other non-psychotic conditions, the researchers said.
