over medicating children?

  1. I am doing a project on ethics/trends in nursing and focusing on the issues of increaed psychotropic medication use in children. all the research I have found is in the eary 2000's when there seemed to be an huge increase in use. does anyone have any current info or sites I can check out? with this awareness is the use decreasing? is it justified? what are the long/short term complications of these meds on children? or any other angle I can pursue?
    thanks for you time is you can give me any info
