With over four million children now on behavior modifying medications -- some starting as young as two years old -- FRONTLINE continues its investigation into the controversial practice of medicating kids.

As the debate grows more fierce, FRONTLINE confronts psychiatrists, researchers and big pharaceutical companies about the risks and benefits of prescription drugs for troubled children.
