(NaturalNews) Adam Lanza, the mass murderer in the Newtown School shooting, reportedly took the pharmaceutical drug Fanapt, made by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. According to the drug company's literature, published on the packing insert, Fanapt is prescribed to treat schizophrenia in adults. Fanapt was approved by the FDA after ONLY two short-term research trials: a four week and a six week trial.

About the Novartis drug Fanapt

Side effects listed in Novartis's HIGHLIGHTS OF PRESCRIBING INFORMATION, which accompanies the prescription bottle when sold, list the following: Fanapt can cause "arrhythmia and sudden death - consider using other antipsychotics first."

Other side effects of Fanapt include suicide, along with hostility, aggression, mania, a confused state, along with problems with impulse control. In addition to high blood pressure and low blood sugar, Fanapt can also cause seizures, and frequently, erectile dysfunction.

The drug company lists as frequent side effects of Fanapt: restlessness, aggression, delusion.
Fanapt can also cause, according to the manufacturer, (infrequent they state): hostility, paranoia, anorgasmia, confusional state, mania, catatonia, mood swings, panic attack, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, delirium, polydipsia psychogenic, impulse-control disorder, and major depression.

Novartis and the FDA state that this drug has not been safely tested on young people. In their own words they say, "Safety and effectiveness in pediatric and adolescent patients have not been established."

Nutrition can treat mental illness

Malnutrition has been shown to increase violence behavior. This research was conducted at a major university, the University of California, and published eight years ago in the prestigious American Journal of Psychiatry. Yet, investigation of diet, absorption and nutrition are not included in interventions in most mental health diagnoses. Instead, prescription drugs are used, with known side effects that contribute to further malnutrition, blood sugar imbalances, and other digestive issues that further destroy the blood and brain chemistry that was the problem in the first place.

Malnutrion causes violence

The study at the University of California showed that malnourished children displayed a 41 percent increase in antisocial and aggressive behavior by the age of eight, and 51 percent by the age of 17. Research at the University of California reported, "Poor nutrition, characterized by zinc, iron, vitamin B and protein deficiencies, leads to low IQ, which leads to later antisocial behavior." The lead researcher, Jianghong Liu, stated "These are all nutrients linked to brain development." The research, conducted by USC's Social Science Research Institute was published in the American Journal of Psychiatry's November 2004 issue after following 1,000 children for 14 years. This trial studied double the amount of subjects as the FDA trial for Fanapt, and followed them for 13 years longer. These types of studies are the gold standard that needs to be used to diagnose and treat mental illness.

Action steps to treat mental illness and social disorders

If you suspect your child, or a student under your care, may have a mental or neurological problem, seek help from a nutritionist, naturopath, homeopath, or psychiatrist familiar with brain chemistry. These conditions can be easily corrected when children are young, and become more difficult to treat when the brain ages.
