The New York Times recently published an article stating that 80% of all psychiatric medicine administered to children and adolescents is not approved by the FDA for the purpose it is being used. The article positions that pharmaceutical companies are using free speech as a tool to market drugs for unapproved uses and the courts are allowing them to do so. Dr. Margaret Hamburg, who recently left the FDA as its commissioner, stated that, “recent court decisions could erode the FDA approval process – put in place to protect the public – and threaten public health and patient safety.”
Fifteen-year-old Andrew Francesco, now brain-dead, is a case in point. He was put on Ritalin at age 5 and by the age of 15, on Seroquel. One Friday he was well enough to go to school, and by that Sunday he was in a vegetative state. His father, himself a pharmaceutical industry insider, wrote the memoir, “Overmedicated and Undertreated,” in part to warn us that pharmaceutical companies systematically put profits above public well-being. He also shared in the book that though a medication did help him, animal therapy in the form of a dog, seemed to help him more.
