Risperdal Side Effects: Do You Have A Lawsuit?

Risperdal, or risperidone, is sometimes used to treat autistic children, particularly those who display irritability. It was primarily used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The maker of Risperdal, Johnson & Johnson, has been the subject of numerous lawsuits and investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice for illegally marketing the drug for nonapproved uses and for concealing the side effects of the drug. Johnson & Johnson, or the unit of J&J known as Janssen Pharmaceuticals, has been accused of marketing the drug as a treatment for dementia, anger management and other conditions for which the FDA has not approved the drug.

At The Gori Law Firm, our defective drug attorneys help people who have been injured by dangerous prescription or over-the-counter medications. We have the resources and skill to take on even the largest drug makers. We handle Risperdal cases nationwide.

Side Effects Of Risperdal

The use of Risperdal has been tied to several harmful side effects. One side effect that has been the subject of significant litigation is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the swelling of breast tissue in men or boys. It is the result of hormone imbalance brought on, in these cases, by the use of Risperdal. The condition often causes pain and embarrassment. In some cases, it requires medication or even surgery to treat.

Other potential side effects associated with Risperdal include hypertension, increased risk of stroke and even death. Patients who are not warned of these side effects, or who are given the drug despite not suffering from one of the conditions it can effectively treat, are being placed in unnecessary risk. If that risk leads to actual harm, we can help.
