"FDA Regulators Request Atypical Antipsychotics Carry New Diabetes Warning"

September 18, 2003
The FDA has requested all six atypical antipsychotics, including Risperdal to include a new labeling warning. Links between the antipsychotics and diabetes have been concerning enough for the agency to issue letters to the drugs’ producers. The diabetes link had been made awhile back but the federal agency waited until further recent studies were performed. The drugs that will carry the new warning labels include; Risperdal, Abilify, Geodon, Clozaril, Seroquel.

The FDA letter recommended Risperdal patients, as well as other atypical antipsychotic patients, are monitored for blood sugar abnormalities especially if the patient has high risk factors like obesity and a family history of diabetes.

"Risperdal Pancreatitis Link Found"

September 2, 2003
A study has found a possible link between four antipsychotic drugs and pancreatitis, specifically with Risperdal use. Researchers have found 192 cases of pancreatitis in the study in newer schizophrenia treatments and 31 of the pancreatitis cases were among Risperdal patients. The study examined all pancreatitis cases reported to the FDA or written up in medical journals between January 1981 and February 2002.

Pancreatitis is a dangerous inflammation of the pancreas, which produces insulin. There were 22 deaths resulting from the schizophrenia drug link, though researchers do point out that the study has not yet shown a direct cause and effect of using Risperdal and pancreatitis. Already, serious Risperdal side effects have been linked to the newer drug and the new possible Risperdal side effect link may indicate concerning findings.
