Risperdal Male Breast Lawyers

Risperdal male breast lawyers from the firm of Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley, LLC are currently working with men across the United States to file dangerous drug lawsuits in pursuit of compensation for their damages. Risperdal is a powerful antipsychotic medication that is prescribed to treat a number of conditions, including schizophrenia, autism, bipolar disorder, Tourette Syndrome, OCD, and attention deficit disorder. Unfortunately, Risperdal has been linked to some alarming side effects, including gynecomastia, or the growth of breast tissue in men. If you or a man you love has developed female breast tissue after taking Risperdal, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial damages.

Risperdal Gynecomastia

Risperdal is made by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and was approved in 1993 to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other mental health conditions. Multiple boys and men who have used Risperdal have developed male breasts as a side effect of this medication, which has been found to increase levels of the hormone prolactin responsible for breast development. Not only can the growth of male breasts be an embarrassing and emotionally traumatic experience, but many men who have Risperdal gynecomastia have needed to undergo painful and costly procedures to restore the appearance of their bodies, including liposuction and mastectomy.

Though Risperdal is distributed with warnings about the potential side effect of male breast growth, many claim that these warnings are inadequate. What’s more, multiple victims of Risperdal male breast growth are boys or young men, and critics allege that Johnson & Johnson illegally marketed Risperdal for off-label use in pediatric patients before the FDA approved Risperdal for children.
