PHILADELPHIA — Hundreds of cases in the consolidated litigation involving the antipsychotic drug Risperdal will have a status conference in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on December 2nd – a crucial judicial step in moving the cases to trial. Nine hundred and fifty plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson, or its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals, after developing Risperdal gynecomastia (male breasts) and other complications from the drug.
What is Risperdal?
Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic drug that is used in the treatment of adult and adolescent schizophrenia, adult bipolar disorder, bipolar disorder in children ages 10-17, irritability Risperdal, however, has been found to cause serious adverse side effects. An October 2014 study by the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology found the drug to cause men to have a 69% greater chance of growing male breasts (also known as Risperdal gynecomastia). Unfortunately, Risperdal’s most harmful side effect, Risperdal gynecomastia, has been documented in studies dating as far back as 2006. Additional side effects include higher risk of diabetes, substantial weight gain, and stroke.
Risperdal and Risperdal gynecomastia have caused countless men (young and old), who are already in emotionally stressful situations, to endure a humiliating and painful health condition. The drug’s manufacturer was found by multiple state and federal authorizes of concealing evidence and illegally promoting the drug to children. Victims of Risperdal and gynecomastia, and their families, may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain & suffering, and lost wages.
