The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, dolling out prescription medications toa third of our nation’s adults. In fact, the prescription drug industry has become so huge, that more than 25% of America’s children and teens are taking prescription medications - many of them for psychiatric disorders.

The benefits of these drugs are touted by medical professionals, nurses, TV commercials and leaflets available in many doctor’s waiting room. The side effects, however, are often masked in fine print and complex language – sometimes not even being warned about at all. If truth be told, many consumers aren’t ever informed about the side effects, even by their very own physician.

This careless behavior displayed by manufacturers, retailers and companies involved in the process has regrettably caused thousands of innocent people to suffer undue injuries, side effects and even death. One would think that clinical studies and the FDA would prevent this from happening, but sadly they do not.
