ADHD treatment causes young boys to develop female breasts

A drug used to treat ADHD children is causing concern in the United States.

It is called Risperdal and it is supposed to be used primarily for adults with sever psychological problems.

But last year it was prescribed more than 6.5 million times.

The side effects include young males developing female sex organs.

Nineteen-year-old John was just seven when he began taking Risperdal for ADD.

Even though the FDA approved the drug only for adult patients who were psychotic, John’s doctor and others widely prescribed it to kids for less severe behaviour problems.

Once taking Risperdal, John’s mum says he became aggressive, sleepy, and developed bowel problems. But the biggest shock came when he was 14 and started developing women’s breasts.

“He asked me if he was a girl,” she says.

It turns out Risperdal can increase production of a hormone called prolactin, which stimulates breast growth. It is called gynecomastia – and it is irreversible.

Risperdal and other so-called “atypical anti-psychotics” have exploded in use.

Hundreds of thousands of kids have been prescribed Risperdal in the 14 years it has been on sale – long before the FDA approved it for very limited pediatric use in 2006.

John and most of the other children were not psychotic at all, but were given Risperdal for behaviour disorders including autism and ADD.

Attorney Stephen Sheller is suing Janssen, which makes Risperdal. He claims Janssen marketed Risperdal for unapproved uses in children, downplayed serious risks like diabetes and seizures.

Janssen would not agree to an interview but told us the breast growth risk is “clearly stated in the FDA-approved” labelling, and “we only promote our products for their FDA-approved indications.”

Nobody knows how often it happens. But in Janssen’s own clinical trials with fewer than 2,000 children (1,885), 43 developed the abnormal breasts.

Mr Sheller represents John and nine other boys – one of whom was only four when he developed a breast on one side and began producing milk.

The treatment for the unbridled breast growth is as unthinkable as the disorder: painful removal of the breasts.
Eventually, the boys can appear normal again.

The family’s lawsuit is still in court.

But John’s mother says surgery did not fix all of the problems from the medicine.

When asked if John still thinks he’s a girl his mother wells up and cries before answering, “yes.”

As for Risperdal – it’s still on the market.  And families say putting even more children at risk.

  1. Yet, they whisk hydroxycut off the market for less than 20 possible side effect cases mentioned, ” to err on the side of caution.”

    In search for the beast”the baphomet” and it’s just appear to be irreversible. God bless those kids

  3. This article has an indirect tie in to the industrial plastic hardener “bisphenol-A”,which I have been following for the past wo years as it is now recogized as a link to the femenizing of male children and lowering healthful levels of sperm production.I have been tring to find data on the increase of intersexed children in the U.S. during the past twenty years . I believe there is a direct connection between the synthetic hormone mimicing agents that continue to turn up in al manner of foods,meds and containers-the promotion of the third gender-evolution and the post human-post gender agenda.Taken together it suggests that the occult underpinnings of the ILLUMINAT I promotion of perfection-eugenics is very real as is the sinnister aspects of radical femenism claiming to oppressed by having a womb. God bless these children;what can we do to combat this agenda-P.S. this is an excellent site-keepup the good work.-S.C.

  4. S.CHRISTOPHER,

    I think if a parent becomes aware of this agenda, if they have any sense at all, they will start watching what their children put into their mouths first of all, knowing that the cans, plastic bottles etc are all lined with BPA. So they will look to better sources of water and food for their children as only a parent can do. That might mean instead of using bottled water, getting well-water or a water purifier, cooking more fresh foods instead of serving them out of a can etc. Making big batches of delicious homemade soup instead of buying canned soup is a good way to start (saves money too and is more nutritious). Instead of saying “Mmm-mmm Campbell’s Good,” they should be saying “Mmm-mmm, mommy your soup is delicious!”. And refusing to let kids drink soda period, just eliminate the use of aluminum cans (some natural sodas in glass bottles might be okay). And pack them a lunch and a drink, in a BPA-free bottle, for school, or even take them out of those schools where they serve junk to the kids.

    As for children who have already been affected from the womb, I believe that if you do the same in eliminating these sources of BPA from their diets as they grow, the body’s DNA will have a chance to recover it’s original structure and begin to catch up. I don’t know this for sure, but I do know that usually when you remove a toxin from the body, the effects diminish and the body begins to repair itself automatically.

    Then we should start lobbying state governments to prohibit the use or import of BPA and products with BPA so that it is eventually eliminated from the total environment. Preferably it would just be eliminated by the free market itself, but people aren’t yet smart enough to know enough to stop buying this crap. So without some government regulation, it will just keep getting into the food chain.

    And yes, this is a eugenics agenda basically to reduce fertility, remove differences between males and females, to stop the bonding process that leads to procreation, etc. Other methods like vaccination and fluoridation are used to weaken body and mind to reduce resistance to political domination and to shorten lifespan to help cull population. We are being treated like cattle and that is because that is the way we are viewed by the murderous psychopathic elite.

  6. My God! Is that true? That is very terrible to hear and scary to have those side effects. I know curing ADHD is good but having those side effects is terrible. That is why I rely in putting my kid having ADHD in schools that aren’t stubborn to give tie and effort teaching them.
