Risperdal: Autism Parents Should Know

Like Autism Live on Facebook at

Risperdal is a drug that has been surrounded by controversy.  TACA founder Lisa Ackerman talks about the recent 2 billion dollar fine against Johnson & Johnson involving  fraudulent claims around 3 drugs, one of them Risperdal.  While the fine had to do with Risperdal in seniors, it still raises questions about the drug being used in children and young adults to treat Autism.  This discussion includes some of the known side effects of Risperdal, including the potential development of lactating breasts in boys and men.  Parents are urged to look at all of their options before deciding to put their children on this and other psychotropic drugs to treat Autism.
