Is Bipolar Disorder overdiagnosed?
As a practicing psychiatrist, I'm alarmed at a study last week that revealed a 40 fold increase in the incidence of childhood Bipolar Disorder over a 10 year period (from 1994-2003).  Moreover, most of these kids, who are falsely labeled in my view, have been medicated with potentially dangerous psychotropics, on which little research has been done regarding safety and effectiveness in this age group!  What's your view??
