Florida-Court Case Regarding Psychiatrist Overmedicating a Disabled Boy

CAROL MARBIN MILLER of the Miami-Herald reported recently that the mother of a disabled boy who died in 2007 has filed a wrongful death suit in Miami-Dade County against Dr. Steven Kaplin for overmedicating Denis Maltez, 12. The mother is outraged after her son committed suicide after taking a lethal cocktail of four mental health drugs: Seroquel and Zyprexa, both anti-psychotic medications; Depakote, an anti-seizure drug sometimes , which is used to stabilize moods, and Clonazepam, a tranquilizer.

We at recognize this as another case of psychiatrists only solution to control a teenager is drugs. They add one drug after another to hopefully control or restrain the teenager. The continued overmedication of teens in the US is astounding. The psychiatric community should be embarrassed that more and more of these wrongful death, suicides, and mass murders are all taking place while they are assisting these teens to improve. It's a case of the insane helping the depressed.

We don’t see the improvement coming anytime soon. We see teens being perscribed more and more drugs, and needing more and more assistance with no solution or end in sight. When do you think BigPharma, and psychiatry will get the message that they have no idea what they are doing? Unfortunately it will be never. These Psychiatrists are the same doctors who used electric shock treatment, straight jackets, and lobotomies. Today they use pills, which have side effects causing suicide, mass murder or at best a need for another pill. Now they have President Obama and the US Congress working more on their behalf. The Mothers Act has been introduced three times already and has failed twice. The Mothers Act will enforce all pregnant mothers to see a psychiatrist during her pregnancy, which will be administered by her hospital. This will essentially place all infant Americans on antidepressants. This is George Orwell’s 1984 worst nightmare coming true. All Americans are under threat to be on BigPharma’s drugs from cradle to grave. These drugs don’t do anything but put someone into apathy, or on the front page as a campus mass murderer. The next generation of Americans has become a “new normal” a medicated generation.

We applaud Martha Quesada, the mother of 12-year-old Denis Maltez, filing of the wrongful death suit. We hope more and more of these lawsuits come to light, and more and more of the West become aware of just what these drugs are and are not.
