It’s All About “Kickbacks”
If you don’t think its all about the money when it comes to prescription drugs and prescription drug addiction please think again. “Health care” giant Johnson and Johnson has allegedly been paying kickbacks to those who will push the powerful antipsychotic to the elderly. It’s so maddening to see these things happen right in front of our face and wonder how the hell we can victim to it. Do you have a loved one in a nursing home? And have ever gone to visit only to find your family incoherent and resting. Well get a clue its not because they are old, it’s the drugs they’re on and it’s called chemical restraint.
The Whistle was Blown
Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have filed suit against the moneymaking giant after two whistle-blower cases were filed, one in 2003 by a former pharmacist who worked for Omnicare, the nations largest pharmaceutical supplier to nursing homes and a former Omnicare financial analyst.
Johnson and Johnson family pays the price

Johnson and Johnson were apparently getting the drug Risperdal pushed onto the nursing home public which is known to increase the risk of death in the elderly, and had in fact has a black box label warning.
Every drug has side effects. They are all toxic. Even those that have made billions should know this. Drug addiction knows no bounds and can afflict anyone. Please be informed when taking any kind of drug, just because it is prescribed does not mean it is safe. Sometimes even doctors are misinformed. Scientists and those that at Johnson and Johnson know this.
