Risperdal Lawsuits

Risperdal is manufactured by Janssen and Johnson & Johnson. This medicine is an antipsychotic that is prescribed to adults and children for the treatment of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism-related behavioral disorders. In addition, it is sometimes prescribed for off-label uses. Although this medicine is so widely used, it has been associated with some serious side effects.

Patients using this drug have reported problems that include:

  • Gynecomastia in young boys
  • Early breast development in young girls
  • Lactation in girls, boys, and women
  • An increased risk of early dementia in adults

In addition to the above side effects, the manufacturers of this medication have been accused of utilizing inappropriate techniques when marketing their drug. This includes marketing the drug for unapproved uses, such as schizoaffective disorder and ADHD. While it is legal for a doctor to prescribe a medication for another use, it is not legal for the manufacturer to market the drug for these off-label uses. As a result, the manufacturers have already paid out more than $5 billion in settlements, including more than $2 billion in fines by the Justice Department.
