Support AutismReach On YouTube - http://www.Patreon.com/AutismReach http://www.AutismReach.org First and foremost, thank you for visiting my YouTube page! My name is Maxwell Lee and I am an Autism Advocate. I have a huge passion for improving the lives of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and have a 30-year-old brother with ASD. I have just graduated with a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (Pharm.D.) and reside in Asheville, NC. I specialize in understanding the complex world of pharmacotherapy, and hope to use my knowledge to benefit the autism community. My Goal: To travel throughout America giving lectures on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the appropriate treatment options available for this disorder to medical professional schools (Medical schools, Pharmacy schools, Physician-Assistant schools, and Nurse-Practitioner schools). At the moment, many autistic individuals are being put on medications that actually make their autistic qualities worse. This is a huge problem that roots from medical professionals getting a lack of education on Autism Spectrum Disorder and the appropriate way to treat it. The prevalence of autism has skyrocketed! We have gone from 1 in 2,500 children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the year 1985 (When my older brother with autism was born) to 1 in 45 children being diagnosed now in the year 2016. With the increase in prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder, we have to make sure that healthcare professionals are getting adequate education into Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the appropriate treatment options available for these individuals. Help me by donating to my project, and feel free to contact me at anytime! When I reach $10,000/month, I will transform my job as a pharmacist into becoming a full-time medical educator on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

I review the anti-anxiety, as well as anti-psychotic medication Risperidone, the generic for Risperdal. Risperidone is used to treat anxiety and for people with more intense problems, bi-polar disorder and even schizophrenia. I was taking Risperidone for anxiety. At the time this video was filmed I was on Risperdal over 10 years, and tell you all about my ups and downs during that time. I may have discontinued use of this medication and all medications at this point. Yet I do not like to say publicly what medications I am or am not taking. I was, however, on Risperidone for about 10 years, and these are my results. I do suggest to first and foremost see a psychiatrist or prescribing doctor and a psychologist or counsellor to diagnose you before starting any medications. In my opinion, and I am not a doctor or qualified medical professional in any way, I suggest to readjust your diet, consider if you are not getting enough nutrients at important times throughout the day (especially breakfast, if you are substituting morning meals for caffeine, which can deprive your brain of nutrients), as well as take a look at the privacy and well being of your current living situation, also your employment situation insofar as relationships at work or if it is a job that makes you happy. Also, I suggest that before starting medication to reevaluate your closest relationships in your life and if there is an imbalance that is causing you to have these problems or any possible outside influences that can be changed without the need for medication. Please consult a prescribing doctor, psychiatrist and psychologist to talk about this before deciding what treatment is right for you. Review of Zoloft (generic for Sertraline): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU1GiqrGnF0 Review of Citalopram (generic for Celexa): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdEVgA7cd2c I cannot offer much advice, because I am not a doctor. However, if you have questions, please just watch the whole video and if you are interested my videos on Citalopram (Celexa) and Zoloft (Sertraline) at the above links. I offer insight to anyone taking this medicine or considering taking this medicine for anxiety, depression or other problems. I wish you the best and wish I had the time to help out everyone. All I can suggest is to actually hear all I have already said in the videos, which should answer your questions, as well as ask your psychiatrist. Here and there I try to help by responding to comments, but I have covered most of everything in the videos. Thanks for watching. Here is information copied directly from WIkipedia on Risperdal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risperidone): Risperidone, sold under the trade name Risperdal among others, is an antipsychotic medication. It is mainly used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability in people with autism. It is taken either by mouth or by injection into a muscle. The injectable version is long acting and lasts for about two weeks. Common side effects include movement problems, sleepiness, trouble seeing, constipation, and increased weight. Serious side effects may include the potentially permanent movement disorder tardive dyskinesia, as well as neuroleptic malignant syndrome, an increased risk of suicide, and high blood sugar levels. In older people with psychosis as a result of dementia it may increase the risk of dying. It is unclear if it is safe for use in pregnancy. Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic. Its mechanism of action is not entirely clear but believed to be related to its ability as a dopamine antagonist.

Picking between psychiatric medications feels impossible if you're anything like me since there are so many factors to look at. Right now I'm looking at either Seroquel or Quetiapine, Zyprexa or Olanzapine, or taking Abilify (Aripiprazole) in conjunction with my Risperdal (Risperidone). - I am Phils Bipolar Disorder (Fight Club ref) and I was recently diagnosed. This is my bipolar story. - I was diagnosed with Bipolar 1 with mixed features and rapid cycling and OCD a few months ago after over a decade of having symptoms. If you don't know me personally, feel free to share with people you think might want to see this. I was sent to the psychiatric hospital where I was diagnosed and during my time at the mental hospital, I didn't really believe the diagnosis and thought that I was just needed to work on my depression but eventually I realized that I was indeed manic and that's when I really started paying attention to my bipolar disorder. Share and subscribe! Contact me if you want to talk. I'd be more than happy to talk to you. Unless you're a troll or spammer. Then you will be ignored. firstname.lastname@example.org

Does anyone remember Thorazine? It was an antipsychotic given to mentally ill people, often in institutions, that was so sedating, it gave rise to the term "Thorazine shuffle." Ads for Thorazine in medical journals, before drugs were advertised directly to patients, showed Aunt Hattie in a hospital gown, zoned out but causing no trouble to herself or anyone else. No wonder Thorazine and related drugs Haldol, Mellaril and Stelazine were called chemical straitjackets. But Thorazine and similar drugs became close to obsolete in 1993 when a second generation of antipsychotics which included Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Geodon and Abilify came online.

It's a special-needs parent's worst nightmare: medical professionals forcing them to give their children dangerous psychiatric medications against their will- and it happened to us. Here is the story of how we were forced into giving our son medication and how we were eventually able to get him off them.

Don't forget to leave a like! Note: What I meant to say in the video is LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR, BUT do NOT take his advice to heart. Listen to yourself, your body, and your mind. Tell your doctor what is happening and keep in mind that he gets paid a lot no matter what he says. Also always get a second opinion. The more opinions/advice you have, the easier it will be for you to decide what is right for you. Aripiprazole, sold under the brand name Abilify among others, is an atypical antipsychotic. It is recommended and primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Other uses include as an add-on treatment in major depressive disorder, tic disorders, and irritability associated with autism. According to a Cochrane review, evidence for the oral form in schizophrenia is not sufficient to determine effects on general functioning. Additionally, because many people dropped out of the medication trials before they were completed, the overall strength of the conclusions is low. Side effects include neuroleptic malignant syndrome, a movement disorder known as tardive dyskinesia, and high blood sugar in those with diabetes. In the elderly there is an increased risk of death. It is thus not recommended for use in those with psychosis due to dementia. It is pregnancy category C in the United States and category C in Australia, meaning there is possible evidence of harm to the fetus. It is not recommended for women who are breastfeeding. It is unclear whether it is safe or effective in people less than 18 years old. It is a partial dopamine agonist. Aripiprazole was developed by Otsuka in Japan. In the United States, Otsuka America markets it jointly with Bristol-Myers Squibb. From April 2013 to March 2014, sales of Abilify amounted to almost $6.9 billion. POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS: Dizziness, lightheadedness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, excess saliva/drooling, blurred vision, weight gain, constipation, headache, and trouble sleeping may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

http://missd.co/ ► Did you know that as many as five percent of people taking psychotropic medications suffer from akathisia? Akathisia is a mental health disorder induced by certain medications, namely antipsychotics, buspirone, SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and other antidepressants. The disorder can cause severe inner restlessness, driving people to violent behavior and/or suicide. Using sophisticated animation and the words of sufferers, this powerful video gives a firsthand look at the devastation caused by akathisia and offers vital information on this dangerous disorder, which affects so many around the world. This short educational video provides answers to these and other questions: What is akathisia? What causes akathisia? What can I do if I experience this life-threatening condition? By spreading the word about akathisia, we at MISSD hope to empower those suffering with the disorder and their loved ones to take action before it’s too late. Please help share this with people you know, and together we can prevent medication-induced suicides and violence. About MISSD (The Medication-Induced Suicide Prevention and Education Foundation in Memory of Stewart Dolin) is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the memory of Stewart and other victims of akathisia by raising awareness and educating the public about the dangers of akathisia. MISSD aims to ensure that people suffering from akathisia's symptoms are accurately diagnosed so that needless deaths are prevented. A website, the creation of educational materials and support of conferences such as Selling Sickness, will help to raise awareness and knowledge of akathisia and medication-induced suicides. Again, we feel it's important to note that we are not anti-drug, and recognize that prescription drugs can be positive and life-saving for many individuals. We are for truth in disclosure, honesty in reporting and legitimate drug trials. If this could happen to Mr. Dolin, then it could happen to anyone. MISSD will make a difference.

Video abstract of an original research paper “Effects of switching from olanzapine to aripiprazole on the metabolic profiles of patients with schizophrenia and metabolic syndrome: a randomized, open-label study” published in the open access Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment journal by Wani RA, Dar MA, Chandel RK, et al. Background: Patients with schizophrenia suffer high rates of metabolic derangements on some antipsychotic medications that predispose them to cardiovascular diseases. Keeping this fact in mind, we planned this open-label study to see the effect on various metabolic parameters after switching stable schizophrenia subjects, who had developed metabolic syndrome on olanzapine, to aripiprazole. Methods: Sixty-two patients with schizophrenia who were stable on olanzapine and were fulfilling modified National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP-III) criteria for the presence of metabolic syndrome were enrolled on the study. Patients were randomly assigned either to switch to aripiprazole or to stay on olanzapine, on a 1:1 basis. Cross-tapering over a period of 1 month was done while switching patients to aripiprazole. Laboratory assessment for metabolic parameters was done at baseline, 8 weeks, and 24 weeks after enrollment; efficacy assessment was done using the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) at baseline and 24 weeks, the Clinical Global Impressions severity subscale (CGI-S) at baseline, and the Clinical Global Impressions improvement subscale (CGI-I) at 24 weeks. Results: All parameters of metabolic syndrome (waist circumference, blood pressure, triglyceride level, fasting blood glucose, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) kept deteriorating in the stay group, compared with a continuous improvement in the switch group over time. At the end of the study, 26 patients (100%) from the stay group and 15 patients (42.8%) from switch group met the modified NCEP ATP-III criteria for presence of metabolic syndrome (P less than 0.001). There were no statistically significant differences between groups in psychopathology changes as measured by the PANSS total score and CGI-I scores. Conclusion: Clinically stable patients with schizophrenia who are taking olanzapine and who have evidence of metabolic syndrome can be successfully switched to aripiprazole, with improvement in various parameters of metabolic syndrome and without any significant change in efficacy measures.

Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/gossfields/ Tumblr: http://gossfields.tumblr.com/ Snapchat: abiwakwhat For any business enquires, please email: email@example.com Info on Mirtazapine: It is an atypical antidepessant with nonadrenergic and specific serotonergic activity. It blocks some adrenergic auto and heteroreceptors, increasing serotonin release, and selectively antagonizes serotonin receptors in the central and peripheral nervous system. It also enhances serotonin neurotransmission and blocks the histaminergic and muscarinic receptors. Mirtazapine is not a serotonin or norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor but may increase serotonin and norepinephrine by other mechanisms of action. Side Effects: Constipation, dry mouth, weight gain, increase appetite, somnolence, sedation, sleepiness, weakness, distrurbance in thinking, peripheral edema, increased blood pressure. When Discontinuing Use: Mirtazapine and other antidepressants may cause a discontinuation syndrome upon cessation. A GRADUAL and SLOW reduction in dose is recommended. Effects of sudden cessation of treatment with mirtazapine may include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, vertigo, restlessness, irritability, decreased appetite, insomnia, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, flu-like symptoms such as allergies and pruritus, headaches and sometimes hypomania or mania. It can go so far as to cause suicidal thoughts, so please, be careful!! AKA not good!!! PLEASE always been under the care of a great doctor and NEVER stop taking a drug suddenly without guidance from your doctor. Some Drug Group Clusters: Mirtazapine falls under - NaSSA (Noadrenergic & Specific Serotonergic Antidepressant) SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) SNRIs (Serotonin-norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors)

Quetiapine is a second-generation (atypical) antipsychotic. It’s approved by the FDA for schizophrenia, acute bipolar mania/mixed and depression, and bipolar maintenance (as an add-on to lithium or divalproex). The extended-release form is also approved as an add-on for depression. Though its approved uses are limited, it’s widely used off-label as a single therapy for depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, and other conditions.

Petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/TScreen/petition.html St. Petersburg Times By ROBERT FARLEY Published July 29, 2007 Skyrocketing numbers of kids are prescribed powerful antipsychotic drugs. More and more, parents at wit's end are begging doctors to help them calm their aggressive children or control their kids with ADHD. More and more, doctors are prescribing powerful antipsychotic drugs. In the past seven years, the number of Florida children prescribed such drugs has increased some 250 percent. Last year, more than 18,000 state kids on Medicaid were given prescriptions for antipsychotic drugs. Even children as young as 3 years old. Last year, 1,100 Medicaid children under 6 were prescribed antipsychotics, a practice so risky that state regulators say it should be used only in extreme cases. These numbers are just for children on fee-for-service Medicaid, generally the poor and disabled. Thousands more kids on private insurance are also on antipsychotics. Almost entirely driving this spiraling trend is the rise of a class of antipsychotic drugs called atypicals. These drugs emerged in the 1990s and replaced the older, "typical" antipsychotics like Haldol or Thorazine, which are often associated with Parkinson-like shakes. The atypicals were developed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults. But once on the market, doctors are free to prescribe them to children, and for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. There is almost no research on the long-term effects of such powerful medications on the developing brains of children. The more that researchers learn, the less comfortable many are becoming with atypicals. Initially billed as wonder drugs with few significant side effects, evidence is mounting that they can cause rapid weight gain, diabetes, even death. They're also expensive. On average last year, it cost Medicaid nearly $1,800 for each child on atypical antipsychotics. In the last seven years, the cost to taxpayers for atypical antipsychotics prescribed to children in Florida jumped nearly 500 percent, from $4.7-million to $27.5-million. Medicaid and insurance companies have fed the problem, encouraging the use of psychiatric drugs as they reimburse less and less for labor-intensive psychotherapy and occupational therapy. Another factor: Doctors have been influenced by pharmaceutical companies, which have aggressively marketed atypicals. Whatever the reasons for the soaring use of psychiatric drugs in children, things have gotten out of whack, according to Dr. Ronald Brown. Last year he headed an American Psychological Association committee that looked into the issue. "The bottom line is that the use of psychiatric medications far exceeds the evidence of safety and effectiveness," Brown said. "What people need to do is what's in the best interest of children instead of what's in the best interest of people's pocketbooks. But children don't vote." The atypicals A new class of drugs emerged in the 1990s, touted as a better and safer way to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Here are the atypicals now on the market.

Did I ever tell you about the time I gained a BUNCH of weight while taking the antipsychotic medications Zyprexa and Risperdal? It's a real knee slapper. I was only 15 years old too. This video is all about that magical belt- and brain-busting experience. If you find this video educational, entertaining, or simply an enhancement of your feeling of solidarity—please consider sharing it on social media. Likes and subscriptions are super helpful too, if you feel moved to do so. And, as always, thanks for watching. Please read if you have a moment: In the video I poke fun at the fact that I went to a therapeutic residential school for almost two years, and while I do take an issue or two with such places—specifically with their (sometimes heavy) reliance on psych drugs as part of their students’ courses of treatment—it should be said that being able to go to that school was a privilege for the emotionally troubled, truant youth that I was. Especially considering the alternatives. A lot of young people end up in far worse places, such as juvenile detention centers, etc. Those who come from economically disadvantaged families are especially vulnerable. Going down this path can lead them into a cycle of incarcerations and a complete loss of hope before their lives can even begin. It's a real problem, and it deserves as much attention as we can give it. If you'd like to learn more about it, episode #7 of the NPR podcast “Caught” is a good place to start: https://goo.gl/Rwqiyp. Really, all episodes are worth a listen. Disclaimer: The views expressed in these videos are my own. My voice is my own. I do not speak for others. Even when it maybe sorta sounds that way. Sources: https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/fat-cell-numbers-teen-years-linger-lifetime Regarding research studies, and the NIH (National Institutes of Health) in particular: Research studies… are what they are. In this video I quoted results taken from a NIH research study in order to support my argument that gaining a bunch of weight as a teenager really sucks and has potentially lifelong repercussions. In the next video, I may very well discuss the NIH in a way that casts them in a deservedly harsh light. This stuff’s complicated.

http://thefreethoughtproject.com/game-changer-study-finds-100-year-old-drug-reverses-symptoms-of-autism/ ‘Game Changer’: Study Finds 100 year old Drug Reverses Autism Symptoms in Kids With just a single dose of this 100 year old drug, autistic children experienced remarkable positive cognitive and emotional improvements. Some of the children spoke their first sentences in more than a decade. This is truly a 'game changer.' According to a revolutionary new study, a drug discovered more than a century ago may hold the key to combating the symptoms of autism. After just one dose, parents of the children in the study watched their kids make incredible improvements, with some speaking for the first time. The study’s lead researcher, Dr. Robert Naviaux of the San Diego School of Medicine is an internationally known expert in human genetics, inborn errors of metabolism, metabolomics, and mitochondrial medicine. He is the discoverer of the cause of Alpers syndrome — the oldest Mendelian form of mitochondrial disease — and the developer of the first DNA test to diagnose it. Naviaux is, by far, one of the most qualified people in the world to conduct this study. During his research, Naviaux noted the transformative results of the drug suramin which was first developed in 1916 and used as an anti-parasitic drug for treating African sleeping sickness and river blindness. After giving a single dose of suramin to boys with autism, between the ages of five and 14, Naviaux recorded something incredible — their symptoms were significantly alleviated. “After the single dose, it was almost like a roadblock had been released,” he said. “If the future studies show that there’s continued health benefits, this could be a game-changer for families with autism.” The study was published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology. During the study, five children were given suramin, while the remainder were given placebos. Included in the group were four non-verbal children, two 6 year olds, and two 14 year olds. “The six-year-old and the 14 year old who received suramin said the first sentences of their lives about one week after the single suramin infusion,” Naviaux told the UC San Diego Health website. “This did not happen in any of the children given the placebo.” One parent, who noted that her son had not spoken a full sentence in more than a decade, said, “Within an hour after the infusion, he started to make more eye contact with the doctor and nurses in the room. There was a new calmness at times, but also more emotion at other times.” “He started to show an interest in playing hide-and-seek with his 16 year old brother. He started practicing making new sounds around the house. He started seeking out his dad more.” Naviaux’s expertise led him to the theory that there is a fundamental metabolic problem in all people with ASD — namely, that cells in affected people experience abnormal levels of something that Naviaux has termed the “cell danger response” (CDR), according to Seeker.
