Get ready for generation Z (Z for zombie). The brains of a generation of children are now being fried by fraudulent brain drugs. Antidepressants are now the number one prescription in America – and our children are the target market.
If you want to save money on health care, especially health care fraud, then ban psychiatrists from getting reimbursement for any services on children and do not provide reimbursement for any psych drugs on any person below age 18. Pay only for cognitive therapy and other stress management assistance, which is equal to or better than drug treatment for even severe depression.
The FDA and the Justice Department turn the other cheek as they allow the rampant off label and inappropriate use of brain medication on our children. The marketing of these medications is based on criminal activity of the drug companies that sell them, something that is well documented and certainly not my imagination (covered in detail in my book, Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA’s Betrayal of America).
