Performers, Cast and Crew:
Are today's children being overmedicated for attention deficit disorders' Does the upward trend in Ritalin use indicate a rise in behavioral problems, or does it mean that more and more busy parents are in search of a quick fix' A&E exposé GENERATION RX consults psychiatric professionals, teachers, and the patients themselves to generate an in-depth picture of the nation's pediatric prescription drug culture.
Description by New Video Group:
A look at how America's love affair with prescription drugs has moved into the playpen. Today, 4 million children begin their school day by taking a small yellow pill, Ritalin, to control their hyperactivity. Since 1990, there has been a 700 % increase in the use of the stimulant. And more than 2.5 million prescriptions for anti-depressants were written for pre-schoolers and adolescents. We look at all sides of the issue and talk to pediatricians, psychiatrists, teachers, parents, and children.
