Arkansas Risperdal® Injury Lawyers

Gynecomastia Attorneys in Arkansas

Risperdal® is an antipsychotic medication that was approved as a treatment for people with schizophrenia by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1993. Since its approval, multiple FDA safety alerts and recalls have been issued due to the severe side effects and adverse reactions associated with the drug.

If you have an adolescent son who was prescribed Risperdal and was diagnosed with gynecomastia, call Caddell Reynolds Law Firm at (800) 889-6944 for help.

Off-Label Use of Risperdal® Is Linked to Gynecomastia

Drug manufacturers will often market an approved drug for “off-label use” in an effort to sell more drugs and make more money. This means that a pharmaceutical company can market an approved drug for one treatment, and then also market it for many other unrelated conditions.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals and parent company Johnson & Johnson marketed Risperdal® as a safe and effective treatment for adolescents suffering from autism and bipolar disorder. Many adolescent boys that took Risperdal® suffered a severe hormone imbalance. This imbalance causes young boys to development male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia can cause pain and emotional distress in young men. In severe cases, some young boys required mastectomy surgery to remove the breasts that grew as a result of taking Risperdal®. If a loved one is taking the antipsychotic medication Risperdal® and required mastectomy surgery for the treatment of gynecomastia, or suffered any other serious side effect, Caddell Reynolds Law Firm is here to help.

Risperdal® Causes Serious Side Effects for Many Patients

Drug manufacturers encourage doctors to prescribe medications to treat conditions for which the FDA did not originally approve. Off-label use of Risperdal® resulted in devastating side effects for many patients.

In addition to gynecomastia in adolescent boys, other side effects from Risperdal® include:

  • Severe anxiety
  • Skin rash
  • Fatigue and dizziness
  • Extrapyramidal effects – sudden involuntary movements of the head, neck, arms, body, and eyes
  • Stomach pain
  • Death in elderly patients taking the drug to treat dementia-related psychosis
