Medicated Child, The 1x57

With over six million children now on behavior modifying  medications — some starting as young as two years old — FRONTLINE continues its investigation, which began with the program Medicating Kids, into the controversial practice of medicating children.  Are the drugs safe?  How young can you detect mental illness in a child? Is medication really the answer?  As the debate grows more fierce, FRONTLINE  confronts psychiatrists, researchers, and big pharma about the risks  and benefits of prescription drugs for troubled children.
