More than 600 Risperdal Lawsuit Claims Have Been Filed Alleging Male Breast Growth after Using Antipsychotic Drug
Date:8/9/2014

f Justice (DOJ) reported that in 2013 that Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. plead guilty to misbranding the antipsychotic drug Risperdal and agreed to pay a $400 million criminal fine. This came after an investigation by the DOJ and the FDA for marketing Risperdal without FDA-approval for use in children with behavior challenges, despite Risperdal's known health risks to children and adolescents. According to the DOJ, the FDA repeatedly advised the company that promoting Risperdal's use in children was evidence of a violation of law. Risperdal was not approved for use in children for any purpose until late 2006, according to the Justice Department.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. also paid $1.25 billion to settle a separate civil case regarding Risperdal.
