Overmedicated

July 23rd, 2009 by flanews

A Florida family that adopted twins in January is livid over medication the girls were given while in foster care.

When Mirko and Regina Ceska adopted the girls, they were on the drug Seroquel. According to Seroquels website, the drug hasnt be approved for kids. Regina said the drugs were affecting the girls behavior.

To tell you the truth, when we received those two children, when we saw them the first time, and they were on all those medications, their behavior was absolutely terrible and almost, you could almost not control them,” said Regina.

A recent report found that hundreds of foster kids are being wrongfully prescribed psychotropic drugs. The Department of Children and Families is researching the problem. DCF has asked the Ceskas to help them with their research.
