New York Times features research by Dr. Christoph Correll showing a strong link between antipsychotic medications and significant weight gain in children. The weight gain could lead to lasting health problems. The study, which appears in the October 28 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), reports that children who were prescribed antipsychotic drugs for the first time saw a significant increase in weight gain and changes in blood sugars and fats, which could impact their long-term health. Dr. Correll, lead author of this study, is associate professor of the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences.
