Medical authorities are mystified and concerned at figures suggesting antidepressant drugs are being prescribed for children, some less than a year old.

Records of the national drug buying agency Pharmac suggest thousands of prescriptions a year are being written for children under 10.

Antidepressants are powerful psychiatric drugs with potentially severe side-effects.

They are not usually prescribed to children younger than 8, and more commonly are not used on those younger than 13.

Depression is not found in babies and doctors the Herald spoke to could see no reason for prescribing antidepressants for them.
