Today there are limited treatments for teens with schizophrenia. This is because younger people can respond differently to medications than adults. Therefore medications are first approved for use in adults before going through further testing in teens.

A clinical research study involves doctors and nurses studying how an investigation medication works in treating conditions such as schizophrenia. Clinical research studies are important in gathering information about how investigation medications work for different people.

While we try to share our "stuff" with friends and family, there are times when we can't find anyone interested in it (I mean, who really wants that loudly annoying baby cell phone that repeats itself ad nauseum?!). So, instead of overloading the dumpsters (many of our thrift stores refuse toys and baby gear), we decided...to read the rest, click here!
