Housecall for Health: Child Prescription Rates Changing
Doctors are keeping the prescription pads in their pockets more when dealing with kids, except when dealing with one particular disorder. According to a new Food & Drug Administration report, the number of prescriptions for a form of Attention Deficit Disorder are spiking.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
A new government report shows that the number of drugs dispensed to U.S. minors has dropped in the past decade. Research from the FDA says that antibiotic use is down 14%, giving health officials hope that efforts to stop excessive overuse of the drug may be working.
However, the number of ADHD prescriptions saw a big increase of 46%.
