Risperdal® is an antipsychotic drug prescribed to treat certain mental and mood disorders, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism. Research has shown that Risperdal can cause gynecomastia—the development of abnormally large male breasts—in young boys and adolescents, which often requires surgery to correct. Along with the development of abnormally large male breasts, lactation may also occur.
If you or your son took Risperdal and suffered from gynecomastia or lactation, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses.

Risperdal® Gynecomastia Risk
In January 2012, Bloomberg reported that Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of Risperdal, was marketing the drug to doctors working with troubled children for uses not approved by the FDA in 2004.
Research has shown the risks Risperdal can pose to children. The largest study on the side effects of the drug in adolescents and children showed hormonal changes in male patients that led to the development of abnormally large male breasts, or gynecomastia. Researchers concluded that Risperdal should be administered to children and adolescents with caution.
