Advice

Patient: My wife and I suffered what is called a fetal demise. This occured at 5 mo. which is quite rare. All check-ups were great during the pregnancy and a week prior to our loss our Dr. recommended Risperdal to treat my wife’s bi-polar disorder. we were very against her taking meds during her pregnancy but the doctor told us it was safe. one week later our son was gone. since then I have found numerous articles warning against this med during pregnancy. what can I do to ensure others do not suffer the same fate?
