Risperdal belongs to a class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics. It is used to treat specific mental health issues and mood disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, irritability associated with autistic disorder, acute manic, and similar conditions.
Risperdal has many side effects, including gynecomastia. It is a medical condition in which male breasts are enlarged, similar to female breasts; this condition can cause humiliation and psychological trauma to the victims. In the majority of the cases, the patients with gynecomastia have to undergo surgery to correct the issue.
If you have been prescribed Risperdal and experiencing enlargement of your breast, you are entitled to file a lawsuit against the company. Reports have indicated that the company manufacturing Risperdal has failed to provide information and warning about its side effects to patients and medical personnel. This led to doctors safely prescribing the drug, and patients taking the drug without being aware of its side effects on their health.
Hundreds of individuals have been approaching the courts of law against the company for their wrongful advertisement.
There are numerous cases in which victims who took Risperdal, developed gynecomastia. They have proved their case against Johnson and Johnson for hiding the serious side effects of the drugs.
In 2019 a Risperdal lawsuit ended in an 8 billion verdict against Johnson and Johnson. Similarly, in July 2016, a Philadelphia jury awarded 70 million dollars to Andrew Yount, a Tennessee teen who developed enlargement of a breast after taking the drug. In this case, the victim provided evidence to prove that Johnson and Johnson have concealed the results of a study showing that the drug caused abnormal breast development in boys from doctors. The doctors continue to prescribe the drugs, and the company continues earning profits from the drugs. There are numerous other cases in which victims have successfully defendant their case against the drug manufacturers.
