I was clearly psychotic at the age of seven. It's difficult to tell exactly what was going on but I was clearly experienceing a mental illness. I wrote about it in my book.

The intended treatment for those so labeled BIPOLAR is psychiatric drugging, using antidepressants and mood-altering drugs such as ZYPREXA,Lithium,risperdal ! Celexa, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Thorazine, Luvox and other similar drugs which are known by the FDA (and the pharmaceutical companies) to cause:
*Lowered life expectancy,
* Weight gain,
*Decrease in brain volume,
*Enlarged breasts and milk discharge in men and women (galactorrhea due to hyperprolactinaemia),
* Lowered white blood cell count (agranulocytosis),
*Involuntary repetitive body movements (tardive dyskinesia),
* Diabetes,
* An inability to sit still or remain motionless (akathisia),
*Sexual dysfunction *

THEN A return of psychosis requiring increasing the dosage due to cells producing more neurochemicals to compensate for the drugs (tardive psychosis), and a potential for permanent chemical dependence leading to psychosis much worse than before treatment began, if the drug dosage is ever lowered or stopped (tardive dysphrenia)!!!

In a recent survey of child psychiatrists it was discovered that 9 out of 10 children in their care were on at least one of these or similar drugs. Despite the recent FDA "black box" warnings, it is not unusual for a child to be put on two or more psychotropic antidepressant drugs — drugs that the FDA says can trigger suicidal thoughts. Do you want your child to be on these drugs with their potentially deadly side-effects?

Excellent PBS program that shows how todays kids are being turned into nothing but unnecessary customers for pharmaceutical and medical industry.
