Just say No to Risperdal, It Causes Deformities

Let’s take a look at one psychotropic drug and it’s side effects. Risperdal (risperidone) is an atypical antipsychotic, which may have contributed to the deaths of 31 children since its 1993 approval, according a New York Times article earlier this year. Of the 31 deaths 11 were treated for unapproved uses.
Risperdal is diagnosed for Schizophrenia, ADD and bi-polar disorder, Risperdal is used for “treatment”, but the side effects are putting people at serious risk. The major warning for elderly adults is increased mortality in elderly patients with dementia related psychosis. Hmm, Increased mortality now that is something that should indicate an alarm for the user. Some of the other side effects of this drug are anxiety somnolence, extrapyramidal symptoms(what?), dizziness, constipation, nausea, abdominal pain, rhinitis (nose irritation), rash, anxiety, diarrhea, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction, diabetes, obesity, lactation in women, and breasts in men and boys.
Now nobody wants any of these side effects for any pill for treatment, but for a man and boy to get breasts must be confusing and quite mortifying. A report from CBS news indicates a four year old boy using risperdal grew one breast which lactated, and the breasts had to be surgically removed. I think we would all experience a psychological disorder if we had a breast forming on our chest.
The more and more patients become aware of these drugs and effects and that the drugs cause the more we expect them to be considered ancient technology. Doctors used leeching and blistering to “heal” patients hundreds of years ago. We know the true knowledge and effects of these drugs will be known, and their so called “treatment” will be exposed. Making the choice to not take these dangerous these psychotropic drugs and to embrace natural remedies will prove to be the best choice. Patients need to know what you are putting in your body. Just say no to psychotropic RX
