I am going to chime in as a parent who used to give her child medications in the class of psychotropic medications. I finally listened to my own child at 13 who was taking them mostly on until he could take no more of the side effects. I was scared about them taking my son away if I did not give him the medications. CPS can do that. I do not have custody of my son, but i have told my son we all are in it together with his health. I will never ever ask him take the drugs again. I think therapy is sufficient for him to deal with his problems. The thing is some of the therapist tout child drugging for psych problems. So he is wary of this. When I took him off the medication it was a sound decision by my son and I due to the side effects he can’t take them. His anger was two fold when taking ADHD medication, and the same with the others as well his moods were erratic at best and his mood swings intensified with the medications not without. I say this to all psychiatrist who want to help the children be wary of all the drugs out there. I am adult 44 year old who has problems with these drugs, imagine how the children will be if they take it? There bodies are more changing than mine. Do not just screen and give drugs. They need to do way more testing on the drugs before they hurt more children. It is evident it is doing harm.
