Spike in number of Australian children put on antipsychotic drugs

Recommended Posts


My thoughts on this. 


2013 coincides with the release of DSM 5. Have the number of prescriptions increased due to withdrawal issues and the addition of other medications to counteract side effects of medications already prescribed? 


The data doesn’t specify whether these were brand new prescriptions- just the total number of prescriptions. The information would have come from our Pharmaceutical Benefit Scheme and Medicare Data.
