Georgia Risperdal Lawsuit Attorney

Trusted Representation for Risperdal / Gynecomastia Cases

Studies have shown that taking Risperdal, a common prescription drug, may cause serious side effects and medical issues. This drug is an antipsychotic medication, prescribed to both children and adults to calm the symptoms of schizophrenia. The side effects, however, are similar to other side effects seen with antipsychotic medications, some of which can be life-threatening.

Negative Side Effects of Risperdal Use

The known side effects of Risperdal may include:

  • Bone loss
  • Galactorrhea (production of milk in the breasts)
  • Problems with sexual functions
  • Weight gain
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiac distress
  • Pancreatitis
  • Gynecomastia (male breast growth)
  • Painful, swollen, or tender breasts for males

One of the most distressing side effects of the drug is that it has been linked to breast development in males, a medical condition called gynecomastia. This condition develops due to a hormonal imbalance. Risperdal can cause an increase in the production of estrogen, which leads to breast tissue growth. Fortunately, in most cases, this tissue is non-cancerous but can cause a great deal of stress, loss of confidence and self-esteem, and other damaging psychological side effects for males.

Major drug manufacturers of this product, such as Johnson & Johnson, are now currently facing a number of lawsuits concerning these harmful side effects.
