‘Trans kids’ prescribed MORE anti-psychotic meds after beginning gender transition than before: study | The Post Millennial | thepostmillennial.com

A 2021 study of military youth has revealed that not only were minors with severe mental illness allowed to embark upon experimental medical sex changes, but also that prescriptions for anti-psychotic drugs actually increased after hormonal interventions were initiated, reports Fox News.

The study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, examined the Department of Defense (DoD) medical records of 3,754 trans-identified adolescents and 6,603 siblings who did not identify as transgender. The findings reveal no improvement in mental health after commencing hormone interventions and an increase in prescriptions for psychotropic medication.

Criticising recent laws seeking to prohibit doctors from performing experimental sex changes on children, Klein and his team argue that children and parents are capable of consenting to these procedures.

Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, of Do No Harm, an organization of healthcare providers seeking better care for minors suffering from gender distress, called such claims “laughable.”

“The notion that 7-year-old children are capable of such decisions is beyond laughable,” Goldfarb told Fox News at the time. “The existence of a large, perhaps as much as 25 percent cohort of ‘detransitioners,’ suggests the folly of assuming the soundness of childhood decisions.”

The number of children and adolescents taking psychotropic medications has skyrocketed in recent years, with many teens being prescribed multiple drugs at once. Little is known about the effect such cocktails of drugs has on the developing adolescent brain.
