Experimental Drugging of Children – Medicaid Funded

VIDEO: Here’s a news clip from a North Dakota TV station that aired yesterday, August 18, 2008: http://www.wday.com/tv/?page=video&vid=29_rxforchildren
Geodon, Seroquel and Zyprexa are high-powered antipsychotic drugs that are not FDA approved for anything whatsoever on children.
Proof you want?
At each of the below links you will find the manufacturer‘s label for each drug which clearly notes: “Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established”

The links also list the side effects of each of these drugs.

Geodon FDA label: http://www.fda.gov/cder/foi/label/2007/020825s026,020919s016lbl.pdf (10/02/2007)

Seroquel FDA label:http://www.fda.gov/cder/foi/label/2008/020639s025s037s038s040lbl.pdf (05/13/2008)

Zyprexa FDA label: http://www.fda.gov/cder/foi/label/2007/020592s042s043,021086s022s023,021253s026lbl.pdf (07/06/2007)

Yet, shrinks are using them on children and State Medicaid programs are paying for these drugs and buckling under the enormous cost.
Do parents know the use of these drugs are not FDA approved for their children? Probably not. However, word is starting to leak out and perhaps they will find out.
How much is your State Medicaid program paying for these drugs on children. You can find out. It is a public record. Ask your State’s Medicaid Director here:
