Teenagers and Antidepressants

Two thoughts in this article strike me as worthy of more consideration. One is the doctor who prescribed sleeping pills and told Mrs. Bolton-Fasman to get a hold of herself. Perhaps he was doing what doctors do but neither course of action was helpful. Second is the opinion of Mrs. Bolton-Fasman to use all the resources available when the situation requires it. But powerful medications have consequences as well as benefits. Keep in mind Mrs. Bolton-Fasman's other consideration that parents need to "square off" down the road on the decision to use drugs.
