Risperdal, also referred to by its generic name risperidone, is an antipsychotic drug used to treat mental conditions in adults, older children and young teens by altering the brain’s chemistry. The attorneys at Simon Greenstone Panatier Bartlett are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of young boys and adult men who have allegedly developed male breast tissue due to their use of the antipsychotic drug Risperdal. It has been alleged that Johnson & Johnson failed to provide adequate warnings about this risk and failed to properly research the side effects of the drug.
Men or boys who developed a condition called gynecomastia – male breast growth – while taking the antipsychotic drug Risperdal may have grounds for a legal claim against it maker, Johnson & Johnson.
Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen unit has already been named in numerous Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuit claims filed on behalf of men and boys who experienced male breast growth, lactation and surgical procedures, including liposuction and mastectomy, to remove breast tissue they developed allegedly due to Risperdal.
