Johnson & Johnson Hid Diabetes Study on Risperdal

Post to Twitter

Johnson & Johnson is being accused of having hid three studies linking diabetes to their anti-psychotic drug risperdal:

Johnson & Johnson officials hid three studies showing some patients using Risperdal developed diabetes while claiming the antipsychotic drug didn’t cause the disease, a witness testified.

According to the Bloomberg article, as early as 1999 J&J had done studies showing that about half of its subjects developed diabetes after a year of taking the medication.  The ongoing lawsuit further alleges that “salespeople were telling doctors that researchers concluded the drug didn’t cause the disease.”

    Risperal reproached.
    Johnson and Johnson is a trusted brand we associate with babies.
    Risperdal,Zyprexa,as well as the other atypical antipsychotics, are being prescribed for children, even though this is an unapproved, off-label use. An estimated 2.5 million children are now taking atypical antipsychotics. Over half are being given them for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,many of these foster children.
