Antipsychotics and Their Effects on Children

Comments Off

Stephen Sheller, founder and managing partner of our firm, was recently featured on Fox News’ America’s News HQ program discussing the overprescribing of antipsychotic drugs (including Risperdal, Seroquel, Zyprexa and Abilify) to children and the detrimental effects these drugs have on children’s health. Some horrible health effects of these atypical, or "second-generation", antipsychotics can include gynecomastia (breast development in young boys), Type-2 diabetes, certain movement disorders and significant weight gain. During his interview, Stephen also discussed the considerable influence pharmaceutical companies wield over FDA and the resulting risk to consumers, including children.
