Antipsychotic Drugs Associated with Abnormal Muscle Movements

The FDA acted today on reports that researchers linked several popular antipsychotic drugs with abnormal muscle movements and withdrawal symptoms in newborns.

The FDA mandated new drug labels. They will contain additional and consistent information about the potential risk for abnormal muscle movements. These movements are extrapyramidal signs or EPS. Plus, the label will include withdrawal symptoms in newborns whose mothers used these drugs during the third trimester of pregnancy. The antipsychotic drugs include Haldol, Clozaril, Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Abilify, Geodon and Invega.

I encourage all my readers to discuss this new finding with their doctors to minimize any risk that may present in their individual treatment plan.
