Abstract

Aims. The safety and effectiveness of psychotropic drug use in the paediatric population are widely debated, in particular because of the lack of data concerning the long term effects. In Italy the prevalence of psychotropic drug prescriptions increased in the 2000-2002 period and decreased afterwards. In such a context, a study with the aim to estimate the prevalence of psychotropic drug prescription in the paediatric population and to describe diagnostic and therapeutic approaches was performed. Methods. The study population was composed by 76,000 youths
