VIDEO: National FOX TV - Psych Drugs

VIDEO:  FOX ran this last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k42bWNYF5aQ

Gogo Lidz, a young college studentis a good example of exactly where TeenScreen will lead our kids.

You can also see her full story published in New York Magazine, My Adventures in Psychopharmacology, here: http://nymag.com/news/features/260006 "Between the ages of 16 and 21, I was prescribed more than fifteen different stimulants, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers."

Psychiatrist admission on FOX:

1. I have to say I'm a psychiatrist. But too many of my colleagues are ready to grab the prescription pad before they learn their patient's life stories.

2. Yes - there are many people who are overmedicated.

3. Yes - there are many people, by the way, who are medicated without somebody having a firm grasp of why psychologically are these people in my office to begin with

4. Too many people blindly trust their psychiatrist. If you're not doing well, you need to move on.
