In Australia at a forum involving Brain C-13 Review child psychiatrists from Australia and New Zealand, 90% were of the opinion that Bipolar disorder is over-diagnosed and therefore overmedicated. We are fortunate that there is a more conservative attitude that allows common sense to remind us of the many contributory factors influencing young minds and the psychological make up of pre-puberty infants and that our professionals are still capable of being shocked to think that there is basis for a report of bipolar being diagnosed in babies of only 2 years of age. We trust that it is the majority of both professionals and members of the public that remain cautious about exposing children to mind changing chemicals that could stimulate future litigation based on the possible claim of physical violation or medical abuse of children. Ritalin is a drug prescribed for hyperactivity disorder known as ADHD. It is a stimulant for the central nervous system more potent than caffeine but has an apparently calming effect on children. The Internet has over one million posts on the side effects of Ritalin. It is however open to much abuse by young people who resort to snorting or even injecting the crushed tablets in a similar fashion to cocaine. All psychiatric drugs have a downside, both in the immediate and long term side effects. In addition, many cause severe reactions when withdrawing from their use.
