Anybody you know

That was pregnant and was taking a small dose of respiridone 2mg
And gave birth to a healthy baby?
I have a friend that just gave birth to a new born
And the baby is going through withdrawals
But is looking really healthy otherwise than a little bit of shaking here and there
Your opinions on antipsychotics and new borns

New information may have come out since the article referenced below was written, however.
