Risperdal® is an antipsychotic drug. Risperdal® has been linked to increasing the level of prolactin in boys and young men who take the medication. Prolactin is a hormone that has been linked to stimulating breast growth and milk production. In young males, increased prolactin has been linked to the development and enlargement of breast tissue. This medical condition is called gynecomastia.
Lawyers and law firms experienced in Risperdal® litigation can answer your questions and explain the process to you if you or a loved one took Risperdal® and experienced the growth of breast tissue. Risperdal® settlements have occurred and you or a loved one may be eligible. Not all claims will qualify, and settlements will often vary widely for claims that do qualify. Our lawyers are not handling these claims as a class action. It is our opinion that the class action process is not appropriate to handle these serious personal injury claims.
Risperdal® is made by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company.

Gynecomastia is a serious medical condition. The unexpected growth of breast tissue can be a painful and difficult injury to a boy or young man. In addition to the physical condition, gynecomastia may affect one’s social life, health, confidence, and mental and emotional well being. Risperdal® has been linked to the production of a hormone called prolactin, which in turn has been linked to an imbalance which may lead to breast tissue. In some cases surgery may correct the physical condition; however the non-physical side effects may be lasting and irreparable.
Filing a lawsuit for a Risperdal® related injury is possible with an experienced Risperdal® lawyer or law firm. An experienced lawyer working for a law firm can file a Risperdal® lawsuit against the manufacturer of the medication. Usually a potential client will contact a Risperdal® lawyer or attorney and provide factual information concerning the potential claim.
The Risperdal® attorneys will investigate the potential claim by ordering medical records for proof of use. The proof of use sought by the lawyer is generally proof that the medication has been taken and which brand or type. This usually takes form of physician or pharmacy records showing that the patient had been prescribed Risperdal® and/or that a prescription was filled at a pharmacy. The proof of injury sought by the attorney is usually contained in hospital or physician records showing that the patient had been treated for a Risperdal® related injury.
The Risperdal® attorneys can then incorporate that information into a complaint or pleading that can be filed against the manufacturer of the Risperdal® for money damages. Contact experienced lawyers or attorneys to learn more.
