New Study Finds Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel Double Patient Risk of Sudden Heart Failure

A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine has found that the popular drugs known as atypical antipsychotics, prescribed for an array of conditions, including schizophrenia, autism, and dementia double patients’ risk of dying from sudden heart failure.

The finding is the latest in a succession of recent reports contradicting the long-held assumption that the new drugs, which include Risperdal, Zyprexa and Seroquel, are safer than the older and much less expensive medications that they replaced.
