Woman Charged for Spiking Her 12-Year-Old Daughter's Applesauce with Prozac


Indiana: Police have charged 51-year-old Karen Walsh with with neglect of a dependent, a Class D felony, after she admitted she had been spiking her 12-year-old daughter's applesauce with Prozac despite the fact the girl didn't have a prescription.

Walsh, who is on Prozac, claimed she was giving the drug to her daughter because the girl had been having trouble sleeping. Police noted, however, that sometimes Walsh would wake her daughter to give her the drug and could not explain why.

Walsh has been allowed to return home on bond and has agreed not to dose her daughter. The child's father will be taking her to a doctor to determine if the medication has caused any long term damage.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
sounds like the mom needs more than just some prozac... there is something to be said for SSRI's and the like screwing up someone's brain. and thats in adults. i can only imagine what those do to 12 year old girls who are just getting used to the hormone changes.

Anyone having to take these kind of drugs just to act like a normal person should not be allowed to keep their kids, or have any more.

I am sorry to sound harsh but you have to be fked in the head to even need Prozac.

When will society wake up and realise that in the long run we are better off not helping these kind of people. SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST FFS!

nice comments, are you human?

lots of parents do this. they're just smart enough to get the kid a prescription first.

  Drugs for some...  
...not for others. Just because something works for you does not mean it will help others, and vice versa. This mom probably has a few other issues. Maybe at this age, when children start breaking away, she needs to feel needed? Perhaps she's just otherwise disturbed.

As for you, Anglo, I'm willing to bet at one point or another you needed a medication of one kind or another. If you took it, you're a hypocrite.
