There have been hundreds of lawsuits filed on behalf of patients who have suffered adverse side effects from taking Risperdal. Well over 100 of these lawsuits are based on allegations the victims suffered from a condition known as non-physiologic gynecomastia, which is basically abnormal breast growth in males.
Lawsuits against the drug’s manufacturer allege they failed to warn the public about the risk of developing gynecomastia. Victims have stated their damages include suffering severe emotional trauma in addition to the physical side effects. While there have been hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and over 2 billion in fines already, there is still the potential for more victims to recover for side effects suffered by taking Risperdal. A skilled attorney can discuss your potential for a lawsuit with you.
