Comment:
My daughter was admitted to the hospital for a very large ovarian tumor, she has Rett Syndrome, the doctor on call gave her a large dose of Risperadol, it paralyzed her for 24 hours and as a result her lungs collapsed, almost killing her. She was in intensive care for 12 days before we decided enough was enough and took her home. She is now doing well.
