Risperdal Causing Male Breast Growth Lawsuits
Risperdal gynecomastia (male breast growth) lawsuits can be filed if you were harmed by this dangerous drug. Medical studies have identified Risperdal as a drug that can cause breast tissue enlargement in adolescent males. You may be able to file a claim for compensation against the drug maker if you or a loved one suffered from gynecomastia while using or after using Risperdal. The settlements are expected to be substantial.
What are the Criteria for Filing a Risperdal Lawsuit?
Risperdal, an atypical antipsychotic drug used to treat schizophrenia and certain problems caused by bipolar disorder, has been linked to the development of gynecomastia in boys and young men.
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes boys to grow breasts. The drug is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson.
The criteria for filing a Risperdal lawsuit include the following:
- Must be male
- Must be currently younger than 21 years of age
- Started taking Risperdal before 10/2006
- Developed breast growth with or without lactation, or diagnosed with gynecomastia
Gynecomastia can be treated using medication such as tamoxifen (Soltamox) and raloxifene (Evista). However, this does not carry a great success rate so many adolescents and young men undergo male breast reduction surgery to remove excess breast tissue. This often leaves unsightly scars and does not always improve the appearance.
