What is Risperdal?
Risperdal (also known as Risperidone), a product of Johnson & Johnson, is an atypical antipsychotic drug that is used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, dementia, autism and Tourette syndrome. Risperdal has endured harsh criticism for marketing treatment in children before 2007 when FDA finally approved the drug for treatment. Risperdal was linked to the side effect gynecomastia in 2010, which is when young males experience large breast growth. This particular Risperdal side effect not only has a physical impact on its victims, but a major emotional toll as well.

About the RisperdalLawsuit
Not only did these boys sustain a lasting psychological and physical trauma with gynecomastia, they also experienced an emotional toll of the disease the drug promised to treat. In more serious cases young boys were required to have extensive breast reduction surgery to removed the excessive breast growth, making compensation from the manufacturer extremely important. Many families affected by the antipsychotic medication have come forward to file claims against J&J in the Risperdal lawsuit in hopes of getting compensation for their expenses, physical and emotional trauma.
