J & J Sets Aside Dollars for Risperdal, Risperdal Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

Written by Attorney Referral Service. Posted in Class Action Lawsuits

Attorney referral Service has opened a new rispedal lawsuit division in response to J and J setting aside a Rispedal settlement fund

Risperdal has some serious side effects. J and J has been pushing Risperdal for off label use.
Boys may be at risk for a serious, potentially irreversible side effect called Gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is a condition where boys grow breasts.

Risperdal® may increase the amount of a hormone (prolactin) in blood. Symptoms may include growth of breast(s), possibly with pain or nipple discharge. A mastectomy may be required to remove the breast(s).
Attorney referral service lawyers are reviewing cases for boys and male adolescents because the initial and updated labeling precautions and subsequent warnings were totally inadequate to inform patients of the potential severity of the risks.Research indicates that use of Risperdal® elevates the hormone prolactin, which is one of the reasons why the drug causes boys and male adolescents to develop the serious and potentially irreversible condition gynecomastia (breast development). Prolactin is a protein hormone that induces and maintains lactation in women after they give birth. In addition to breast growth, elevated prolactin may increase the risk of breast cancer in young boys and adolescents and harm the male reproduction system.

Accepting cases in Florida , Georgia and nationwide

The antipsychotic drug Risperdal® was originally approved by the FDA for use in adults with schizophrenia. The drug was used "off-label" in children and adolescents, meaning it had not been approved by the FDA, for bipolar disorder, autism, irritability, aggression and behavior disorders including Attention Deficit Disorder/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The manufacturer of Risperdal® applied for approval for use in children and adolescents for certain conditions. In October 2006, the FDA approved the use of Risperdal for irritability associated with autistic disorder in children and adolescents. Additional approval in August 2007 was for treatment of acute mania or mixed episodes associated with Bipolar 1 disorder in children and adolescents.

Both "off-" and on-label use di not give adequate warning  of Risperdol dangerous side effects.

If your son or a young boy or adolescent you know has experienced abnormal breast development or has been diagnosed with gynecomastia, contact us now to learn your rights and protect the health of your child.

If you have any of the following side effects from Risperdal, consult your physician immediately

  •     Involuntary muscle movements, extrapyramidal symptoms/ tardive dyskinesia
  •     Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome, NMS,
  •     Diabetes from Risperderal
