Risperdal is an anti-psychotic medication approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in 1993. Risperdal is prescribed to children and young adults to help treat ADHD, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. It works by targeting serotonin and dopamine receptors in the brain.
Several serious medical conditions have been linked to the use of Risperdal since it was introduced to the market. The most serious side-effects are gynecomastia (male breast growth) and movement disorders. The drug has also been linked to diabetes and heart complications.
Gynecomastia is the development of breasts in young males. Since Risperdal has been approved for adolescent use, there have been hundreds of cases of gynectomastia reported. In some cases, breast development reached the size of “D” cups. This condition can be debilitating for a young male to experience. Young men who experience gynectomastia often must deal with extreme embarrassment and social anxiety surrounding the issue of their breast growth. It can be incredibly difficult for these individuals to engage in day to day activities with this condition.
Settlements have not yet been paid in Risperdal lawsuits. It is expected that this litigation will move forward and result in compensation for consumers harmed by this drug. Settlements typically include monetary damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.
