Do the drugs that are prescribed for persons with mental disabilities really work? The doctors say that they are completely safe. The FDA warns of terrible side effects that include death. While the attorneys and court systems are loving all the extra business. I have tried everything and I mean everything to reach my child with out the need for drugs but at this point I honestly believe that the psychologists are right and there is a chemical imbalance in my child's brain that has resulted in numerous mental illnesses. It's a scary thing to put your child on mind altering drugs even if your doing it to balance them out. However I think I may be ready to follow there advice. Question though from a mom's perspective: "Which is worse; to have your child use these drugs that are proven unhealthy and unsafe or to continue to allow their own mind to deceive and distort their way of thinking and hope for the best?
