Risperdal is an atypical antipsychotic medication
that changes the chemical actions in your brain.
Risperdal is used to treat psychotic symptoms
including hallucinations, delusions, and confusion.
Risperdal may also be used for purposes other than
those listed in the medication guide.
Unfortunately, not only are schizophrenia, bipolar mania,
and Alzheimer patients being given Risperdal; children and adolescents
displaying only minor conditions are also being prescribed Risperdal. According
to many Risperdal critics, the risks for suffering potentially deadly and
serious conditions are far greater than the benefits that Risperdal can provide
for minor conditions.
The use of Risperdal is dangerous not only because of the serious and deadly
Risperdal side effects linked to the antipsychotic medication, but because
Risperdal may disguise signs and symptoms of other conditions. Risperdal may
mask the presence of Risperdal overdose, intestinal obstruction, brain tumor,
and Reye’s syndrome. Safety implications have not yet been established for
prescribing Risperdal to pregnant women or to children.
The scope of Risperdal dangers is great but not greater than the financial gain
to Johnson & Johnson. More than 10 million people have used Risperdal, allowing
Risperdal to be the number one prescribed antipsychotic drug. Prescription drug
sales for Risperdal were $2.49 billion for the first quarter of 2004 with
projected sales reaching as much as $11.2 billion by 2006.
