    The extent to which the general public (or an organization’s target market) is able to identify a brand by its attributes.

  2. Risperdal made me psychotic within two weeks, it was terrifying! The psychiatrist wanted to double the amount of the med to fix this extremely adverse effect. We left that lunatic, and went to a neurologist. He took me off the Risperdal, put me on Seroquel and lithium. This also made me sick, so the GD neurologist lied to my husband and I, and added Risperdal back to the toxic drug cocktail two weeks later. Gosh, were the doctors being bribed to push Risperdal in 2002? I’m quite certain.
