“Candy is dandy but Zyprexa is quicker”

Unfortunately, we can’t legally give our children liquor. We can, however, give them doctor prescribed psychotropics.

We at NamiDearest understand how difficult it can be to force pills down your young child’s throat. This can interfere with family functioning and cause a great amount of stress for all involved. Delivering psychotropic medications by injection is not usually an option at home, and well, I think we’d all prefer to avoid delivering psychotropics to them rectally. You never know when those little buggers are going to make…umm…accusations. Better to make a game out of taking meds…

How can I make a game out of taking medications, you ask?

Well, every family needs some quality time. Set aside an evening for “family game night”. Sit down at your kitchen table with several bags of assorted hard candies and glasses of water for each member of the family. You’ll also need a pen or pencil and a pad of paper for tallying scores. After watching this video below, take turns swallowing the candies. Once everyone is able to swallow the candies, pass out 30 candies to each player. Let the fun begin! Whomever can swallow all their candies first, wins!

*Remember, it’s never safe to take candy from strangers. But if mommy and daddy or the doctor gives you candy, it’s okay.*

Once the whole family has mastered the art of swallowing candy “pills”, you can all graduate to swallowing psychotropic cocktails.

The family that medicates together, stays together.

  1. Eli Lilly Zyprexa saga

    They called it the *Five at Five* (5 mg at 5 pm to keep nursing home patients subdued and sleepy) and *VIVA ZYPREXA* (Zyprexa for everybody) campaigns to off label market Eli Lilly Zyprexa as a fix for unapproved usage.
    A New York Times report reviews what has been accomplished by multiple civil
    and criminal lawsuits against Big Pharma companies that have relied on fraud
    to market industry’s worst pharmaceuticals–antipsychotic drugs–which have
    become industry’s most profitable cash cow.
    “The new generation of antipsychotics has also become the single biggest
    target of the False Claims Act, a federal law once largely aimed at fraud
    among military contractors. Hundreds of millions of
    dollars or is currently under investigation for possible health care fraud.”
    Only 9 percent of adult Americans think the pharmaceutical industry can be trusted right around the same rating as big tobacco. No Wonder!
