Risperdal is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is also prescribed as a treatment for autism and ADHD in children. However, some boys who have taken Risperdal have developed breasts or have begun to lactate.

Galligan Reid PC is a law firm that is investigating cases involving adverse Risperdal side effects. If you or a family member has suffered these or other side effects, we can represent you, seeking full compensation for your financial costs, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Common Side Effects of Risperdal

Use of Risperdal has been connected with these conditions:

Gynecomastia — Growth of breasts in adolescent males

Galactorrhea — Spontaneous flow of milk from male breasts

Neuroleptic malignant syndrome — Causing symptoms such as muscle rigidity, fever, delirium and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system

The drug's manufacturer, the Janssen unit of Johnson & Johnson, has already settled some lawsuits that alleged that use of the drug caused gynecomastia in adolescent males, and more lawsuits are expected to be filed. You should discuss your case with a lawyer experienced in defective drug litigation as soon as possible.
