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.

Risperdal & Gynecomastia

Studies have identified Risperdal as a drug that can cause males, especially adolescent males, to develop enlarged breast tissue. This condition is known as gynecomastia. In a clinical trial of 1,885 adolescent boys, 43 developed enlarged breast tissue. In some cases, breast development reached the size of “D” cups.

Risperdal & Movement Disorders

Many patients have developed movement disorders while taking Risperdal. Extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) are a loss of control over movement, which many users have experienced. Another type of movement disorder is tardive dyskinesia, which involves involuntary and repetitive movements. Both of these movement disorders have been reported by users of Risperdal.
