We are currently accepting Risperdal claims involving males that took the anti-psychotic drug Risperdal (brand names include Riderdal, Risperdal M-Tab, and Risperdal Consta) and suffer from breast development.
Risperdal is a medication used in the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is a product of Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and can be used by both adults and children.
Risperdal’s label indicates use for: (1) the treatment of schizophrenia in adults and adolescents; (2) alone, or in combination with lithium or valproate, for the short-term treatment of acute manic or mixed episodes associated with Bipolar I Disorder in adults, and alone in children and adolescents; and (3) in treatment of irritability associated with autistic disorder in children and adolescents. Patients suffering from psychiatric conditions may be helped with the use of this drug.
However, in recent news, multiple class action lawsuits are being filed against Johnson & Johnson on behalf of male patients developing breasts after taking Risperdal. There have been several reports of the use of Risperdal linked to men, particularly young male boys developing breast tissue, or suffering from significant nipple pain or discharge, or suffering from a condition called gynecomastia.
The manufacturer of Risperdal allegedly knew that taking the drug left a possible risk of patients growing breasts or developing breast tissue, however failed to warn patients of the defective and dangerous nature of the drug. Therefore, the pharmaceutical company, Johnson & Johnson, may face liability for lawsuit filed from those men suffering from such side effects.
Filing a Risperdal Lawsuit
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our dangerous drug attorneys represent male patients who have suffered from breast development and other serious side effects as a result of taking Risperdal. For this type of claim, a class action lawsuit may be filed. A class action lawsuit is when a large number of individualized claims are represented by one lawsuit. Filing this type of suit may be beneficial in some situations because often times due to the large number of claims within the lawsuit, the efficiency of the legal process can increase, as well as costs of litigation could become lower.
However, a class action Risperdal lawsuit can be detrimental in one’s case, and filing an individual Risperdal lawsuit may be more beneficial to the male patient.
