What is Risperdal?
Risperdal (also known as Risperidone) is an antidepressant medication that was commonly prescribed for the treatment of autism, bipolar disorder, dementia and schizophrenia in children. The use of Risperdal has been linked to a condition called gynecomastia, or the enlargement of male breast tissue.
Risperdal Gynecomastia Lawsuits
Lawsuits are being filed against Johnson and Johnson, the manufacturer of Risperdal, for marketing Risperdal as a treatment for children prior to receiving FDA approval to do so in 2007. Gynecomastia has been a devastating side effect for young boys who were prescribed the drug and developed enlarged breast tissue. If you or a loved one developed significant male breast growth after taking Risperdal, you may be eligible for a cash settlement.
