Sleep apnea, a danger of Risperdal
Posted on Friday, May 16th, 2014 at 4:33 pm by Williams Hart
Risperdal is an antipsychotic medication designed for individuals with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and is also prescribed to treat irritability associated with autism. Over the years, however, many lawsuits have been filed against its manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, over allegations that it can cause a variety of adverse effects like sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a disorder that often prevents an individual from reaching deep, quality sleep. It causes breathing to pause or become shallow several times in one night for a few seconds or even several minutes each time. Individuals with this condition often suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness and increases the risk of having work-related or driving accidents.
