I don't know why I didn't think to put this web site into my links list earlier. It's a really important issue.
APANA - Autistic People Against Neuroleptic Abuse
I've seen first-hand what horrible damage these drugs can do to people (any kind of people, not only autistic people). These drugs are sometimes given to elderly people in nursing homes and to psychiatric patients, and even to children, who have their lives ahead of them. Some (maybe all, I don't know for sure) of these drugs can cause permanent brain damage resulting in uncontrollable and crazy-looking movements. It's hard to believe that anyone can legally prescribe drugs that are known to cause brain damage and permanent disability, isn't it?
