Risperdal and Breast Enlargement in Boys
Risperdal is an anti-psychotic drug approved to treat symptoms of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism. The use of Risperdal has been linked to a condition called gynecomastia, or the enlargement of male breast tissue. This can be emotionally very traumatic for a young boy and cause permanent psychological harm. In some cases, surgery is necessary.
Risperdal is manufactured and sold by Johnson and Johnson. Hundreds of personal injury lawsuits have been filed on behalf of boys or young men against Johnson and Johnson. In addition, Johnson and Johnson has had to pay millions of dollars to resolve federal and state government allegations that the company illegally marketed several drugs, including Risperdal.
