Risperdal Lawsuits

Defective Product Lawyers in Oxford Fighting for You

Risperdal (Risperidone / Invega) is an antipsychotic drug approved by the FDA in 1993 for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults. In 2006 and 2007, it was approved for additional uses, including behavioral disorders related to autism in children, bipolar disorder in adults and children, and schizophrenia in children.

Shortly after its approval, reports of serious side effects and the inappropriate marketing of Risperdal began to surface due to the manufacturers heavily marketing the drug for off-label uses in children and adolescents. Since then, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has been forced to pay billions in criminal penalties, fines, and lawsuit settlements.

Risperdal is known to cause unwanted side effects, such as excessive weight gain and growth of male breast tissue or Gynecomastia. Male breast growth is often mistaken to be a result of the weight gain, however, this is simply not the case. Gynecomastia is caused by an increase of the hormone prolactin, which stimulates breast growth. Most males have higher prolactin levels in their body when taking Risperdal.
