First- and Second-Generation Antipsychotics for Children and Young Adults

Slide: 5 of 43

Introduction to Antipsychotics in Pediatric Use (3 of 4)

Many first-generation and second-generation antipsychotics are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in children and/or adolescents. Recommendations or advertisements that promote the use of pharmaceuticals for indications that have not been approved by the FDA (off-label) are illegal. However, off-label prescribing by physicians is permitted.
