FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (CBS/WFOR) The apparent suicide of 7-year-old boy Gabriel Myers, who was taking several psychiatric medications, has led to the introduction of a bill in the Florida legislature, which would assure that powerful mental health drugs dispensed to Florida foster care children would be more closely monitored.
The proposal is largely based on the findings of a task force formed after Gabriel locked himself in a bathroom and hung himself with a shower cord last April.
Gabriel was on Seroquel – used to treat bipolar disorder – and other psychiatric drugs linked by federal regulators to potentially dangerous side effects, including suicide, but the risks may not have been adequately communicated to his foster parents…..
This is a perfect example of how Psychiatric Drugs do not help Patients, but actually push them into Ideas that they would never consider. It becomes a complete emotional roller coaster, because the drugs cause chemical imbalances in the brain. A never ending up & down as long as the medication is used.
People must be free of these drugs, for Reality will not change with a Pill. Suck it up! Someone has it it worst then you. What can you learn from this?
