Drop in preschoolers taking mental health meds
Despite growing concerns in recent years over the percentage of children receiving medications for mental health problems, a new study finds that the rate of prescriptions in very young children seems to have stabilized late in the decade of the 2000s, after its peak in 2004. "It's heartening to realize that we are not just going up with medication use every year," said study researcher Dr. Tanya Froehlich, professor of pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio.
