At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Michigan Risperdal drug lawyers represent patients, both children and adults, who have suffered from gynecomastia, or breast tissue development, as a result of taking the prescription medication Risperdal. When a patient suffers from such complications, it can give rise to a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company and drug manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. These dangerous drug lawsuits often result in significant settlements.
Risperdal is a medication used in the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, even though it has been known to be an effective antipsychotic drug, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported several serious side effects that have affected users of the drug.
