What is Risperdal?
Risperdal is a medication used in the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
It was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 1993 for treatment of such disorders, however the drug was also commonly prescribed in a so called “off-label” capacity for the treatment of behavioral disorders in the elderly such as dementia, attention deficit disorder (ADD) in children, as well as anxiety, depression, and autism.
Even though the medication has been known to be effective in treating such medical conditions, there have been a number of studies that report several patients, particularly men growing breasts or developing breast tissue as a side effect.
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 Risperdal or generic drug as a minor (ages 17 years or younger).
- Usage of brand name drug (Risperdal) for at least 30 days.
- Requires formal diagnosis of gynecomastia before filing in court.
- Cannot be a Michigan resident.
