The New Drug Of Choice – CBS News Video.

CBS did a news story on the drug, and the video link is up above.  The disturbing part of this problem is that the children who were prescribed the medication have irreversible side effects.  Gynecomastia, or abnormal breast growth, could only be fixed in these children with a surgical mastectomy.  I just want to put the word out there about the dangers of this drug in children.
