Children Taking Fewer Antibiotics, More ADHD Drugs

 

A study by the Food and Drug Administration found that children are taking fewer antibiotics now than 10 years ago.

After analyzing prescription drug databases, researchers can also say that the use of birth control and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication rose over the last decade.

Contraceptive prescriptions jumped 93 percent and prescriptions for ADHD drugs rose 46 percent from 2002 to 2010.

"Contraceptive prescriptions jumped 93 percent" that´s a huge jump.
That is something that should looked into I mean we´re talking about Contraceptives for Children and that really says something about the decline of Society.

These are not contraceptives for "children." From the source:
"MedPageToday reported that recent surveys suggest that more young women are not going on the pill, so the shift may reflect that teens already taking birth control are taking it longer. Another possible reason is more adolescents are taking birth control for secondary conditions, such as treating acne."

  For the Pharmaceuticles..  
 
It is a better profit margin to keep doling out ADHD meds than anti-biotics.
