From CBS news here is a video I could not watch because my wireless is screwed right now. Please let me know what it says.
Here is a comment from an email group reporting on it:
Just watched coverage on mainstream media (CBS Evening News tonight) of dangers of Risperdal to address behavioral problems in a child dx’d with ADHD- talked about how doctors widely prescribe it for children in spite of no FDA approval for such use. Discussed tragic case of boy who developed breasts as a direct result of hormonal side effects of the drug. In spite of requiring double mastectomy to address this condition, he persists in thinking he is a girl, his mother tearfully recounted. In any case, a bit of a breakthrough that this story was covered in primetime mainstream news.
And here is the one-line grabber at the site of the video:
“Caution: Graphic Content:” For children diagnosed with ADD and bi-polar disorder, Risperdal is widely used for treatment. As Sharyl Attkisson, the side effects are putting them at serious risk.
And here is the video.
