US: Have Efforts to Slow the Rapid Increase in Antipsychotic Use in Children on Medicaid Worked?
American Journal of Managed Care – July 15, 2016
A study suggests that rising use of antipsychotic medications among Medicaid-insured children peaked in 2008 and has since started to decline. Additionally, children in foster care who are treated with antipsychotics are more likely than other Medicaid-insured children to receive psychosocial interventions and important physiological monitoring for medication side effects.
