QUOTE FROM GWEN OLSEN FROM HER APPEARANCE IN THE FILM - DOCTORED "Children are the largest expansion market available to the pharmaceutical industry, bar none. Children have nowhere to go. They don’t know how to put into words; they don’t know how to communicate the side effects that they are experiencing. They don’t know to relate them to the drug. Their behavior escalates, or their maladaptive behaviors escalate and they get more drugs added to them or they get the dosage increased and they become delusional and they hallucinate and all kinds of things happen to them and they don’t know how to articulate it to their caretakers.
It becomes an add-on business technique to sell more drugs and to have lifelong customer bases. All kidos have health insurance. Their either covered by private insurance or by Medicaid so therefore you have a guaranteed reimbursement in terms of insurance and you have a refill, a guaranteed refill consumer because the doctors are going to encourage their patients to refill their prescriptions. The parents make them refill their prescriptions so this is a marketing ploy to get our children on drugs because they have recognized that not only are all covered by insurance but they are lifelong customers if they can get them on drugs at an early age.”
