Risperdal goes to court

Of all the corrupt methods of marketing the atypical antipsychotics, perhaps the most notorious was the Texas Medication Algorithm Project (TMAP), a set of treatment guidelines that favored Risperdal over other drugs.  For the past week, TMAP and Risperdal have been on trial in Austin, Texas.  In attendance is Kal Applbaum, an anthropologist at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, who is blogging the trial for Somatosphere.  You can see his posts here.

  1. Risperdal is a cousin of Zyprexa and Seroquel.
    PTSD treatment for Veterans found ineffective.

    Risperdal and Eli Lilly Zyprexa can cause diabetes.
    This is a powerful drug that can damage a young person physiologically for life.
    Please take with caution and learn as much as you can about side effects.

    The Zyprexa antipsychotic drug,whose side effects can include weight gain and diabetes, was sold for "children in foster care, people who have trouble sleeping, elderly in nursing homes.
    *Five at Five* was the Zyprexa sales rep slogan, meaning *5mg dispensed at 5pm would keep patients quiet*.

    WARNING- If a drug Risperdal (Zyprexa) lists anything about the pancreas among the side effects, it probably means it can cause diabetes.
    Risperdal,Zyprexa is glorified Thorazine at ten times the price.
