    Default Is it leagle ?

    I saw a doctor for a herniated disk in my neck and my fingers were turning white and going nnumb. I was told it was a circulation problem. At the doctors office I was given a drug in a plain bottle with no lable or instructios. I told the nurse I wouldn't take anything without knowing what it was. The nurse left the room and returned with an orange lable on the bottle and the word Tenal written on the lable and I was told to take one pill each night befor bed, and the meds would help my circulation. I couldn't find anything under Tenal, so I looked up Janssen the name on the pill, and learned the meds were risperdal 0.5 and checked at my local drug-store. Is a doctor aloud to give out dangerous meds mislabled without instructions under a different name that doesn't exist? Risperdol has some pretty bad side effects and warns against drinking while taking this drug. I do drink. the warnings also state the patient and his family should know if and when he is taking this drug because of the side effects. Is this leagle and what is my recourse if any? I haven't taken the drug and have kept the bottle.[?]

    No you are right, that is not legal! You have every right to make a complaint.

    Have you had any mental problems in the past? Do you take medications for them? Is this the first health problem you have ever had? It seems that the doctor thinks your pain/circulation problem is all in your head, and gave you Risperdal. Or he is a bad doctor and didn't check to see just what pills he gave you, which is careless. I'd confront him about it and find yourself a specialist.
