I did intend to show the chemical structure of saphris and let people make up their own mind if the drug could cause a blood disease, be it neutropenia or agranulocytosis. The point here is that death is possible from taking saphris and I was going to post the FDA synopsis of the deaths in the trials.
> > > > Here is the link to the post here that I posted a link where one got agranulocytosis, and one person getting it does show that it is possible and as time runs, we could see if other reports substantiate that it can happen. The drug is newer on the market so there has not been a great amount of time for reports to be cataloged. I want to post this information here that is factual concerning that there is a case of agranulocytosis from taking saphris and that neutropenia is listed in the PI as a possibility. As to if the one will be more evident going forward, there is still neutropenia listed now.

I wrote about the deaths in the trials with saphris. Here is a link to an article that summerizes 1000 pages. If you are considering having a prescriber prescribe you this drug, I am requesting that you show the article to them.
