Medicating Our Youth: Who Determines Rules of Evidence?
Foltz, Robert
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n2 p10-15 2010
There is increased use of medications with troubled youth and a corresponding increase in research about these drugs. However, even the most exhaustive efforts to demonstrate the effectiveness of medication strategies have resulted in less than robust outcomes. A critical review of the most prominent studies highlights this questionable trend in the common diagnoses of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and pediatric bipolar disorder. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
