Are you a boy or young man, between the ages of 13 and 25, who has suffered health complications after taking Risperdal? With the generic name Risperidone, this medication has been used to treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Autism-related irritability in children who are ages 5 to 16
  • Bipolar disorder in those ages 10 and older
  • Dementia in the elderly
  • Depression
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Schizophrenia in teenagers and adults

  • Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Risperdal in 1993, serious side effects have been reported. Here are some of the health complications.

    Risperdal Side Effect

    Risperdal was intended to address some complex health issues. However, Risperidone may increase the risk of:

  • Breast development in boys, which is called gynecomastia
  • Motor problems, referred to as tardive dyskinesia
  • High blood sugar
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Death

  • Since April 2005, warnings on Risperdal boxes indicated that seniors with dementia who take antipsychotic medications may have a mini- or full-blown stroke. An increased risk of fatalities may also result after using Risperidone.

    Risperdal Lawsuit

    Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), developed Risperdal. As one of the most frequently prescribed medications, Risperidone generated more than $24 billion in worldwide sales between 2003 and 2010.

    The government has already required J&J to pay millions of dollars for false claims. In September 2012, more than 420 Risperdal lawsuits had been filed including 130 that involved Risperdal gynecomastia complaints.
