Families require facts on medicationsMay 18, 2020
For many children, medications are a part of the treatment plan. Before starting any medication, physicians should always describe the associated risks and benefits so young people and their families can make informed decisions. Physicians should also carefully monitor children to ensure that benefits are maximized and side effects minimized. For more information, see Vol. 2, No. 2 of the Children’s Mental Health Research Quarterly.
