Lawsuit seeks to stop over-prescription of psychiatric drugs to children
McClatchy (2/11, Holland) reported, “An Alaska mental health advocacy group that has spent years battling the pharmaceutical industry over medication is suing more than a dozen Alaska child psychiatrists, saying the doctors unnecessarily drugged children and committed Medicaid fraud.” The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights “filed as a whistleblower on behalf of the United States against the Alaska doctors and other defendants, including health service agencies, pharmacies, and state officials. The case accused the defendants of following the drug companies’ marketing to the point of deliberate ignorance or reckless disregard for the health of their patients when it comes to prescribing medications to kids.”
