http://rt.com/usa/news/parents-child-daughter-rachel-619/In the case of little Rachel Harrison, her parents say a CPS-appointed physician filled out a Risperdal prescription for their daughter, but only after he met with the girl for 16 minutes. Dr. Osagie ignored attempts from Fox to comment on the issue, the station reports, which very well be because he is very busy they network adds that he has so far treated 755 children in CPS foster care.
Pisses me off especially since I witnessed this jargon first-hand. Apparently the state pays the foster or group homes more when kids are "disabled", mentally or physically. Finally after leaving foster care at age 18, and after 9 months of physical therapy to self-ween off of medications, the Mental Health department of my county formally apologized for misdiagnosis and took me off of all of the Astra-Zeneca medications. These medications can have awful, life-long side effects, including bu not limited to diabetes. They can be especially harmful to patients whom are misdiagnosed with disorders like this young girl.
Discuss: Psychiatric medications, the benefits of the humanistic psychology vs. pharmaceutical psychology, experience, thoughts on this little girl, validity of this web source, etc.
