We are handling Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuits cases for male patients developing breasts while taking Risperdal or within five years of their Risperdal usage.
Gynocemastia, or male breast growth, is serious side effect of the Risperdal drug. Risperdal is commonly used in the treatment of psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Recent scientific studies and medical reports demonstrate gynocemastia is a side effect of Risperdal. Drug companies failed to disclose this potential risk to consumers.
Gynocemastia has caused severe mental and psychological distress to boys, teenagers, and men who are self-conscious about this condition.
Many have resorted to breast reduction surgery and other plastic surgery procedures to correct the condition. However, these surgeries are expensive and can leave embarrassing permanent scarring.
Am I Eligible To File A Risperdal Lawsuit?
The following criteria needs to be met in order to be considered a candidate to file a Risperdal lawsuit:

- Usage of brand name drug (Risperdal) for at least 30 days.
- Requires formal diagnosis of gynecomastia before filing in court.

Patients who have developed breasts or breast tissue, after taking Risperdal can pursue a Risperdal lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company. Cases are also being filed against generic drug makers as well.
