New Risperdal Lawsuit Filed in Pennsylvania Litigation; Alleges Male Breast Growth Injuries Caused by Anti-Psychotic Medication, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:10/24/2013

th autistic disorder between the ages of 5 and 16. Additionally, the medication has increasingly been prescribed off-label to treat ADHD, research indicates.**

Research published over the past several years has lent evidence to the association been Risperdal and gynecomastia, which may be caused by the potential for the medication to produce excessive amounts of prolactin, a hormone known to stimulate milk production and breast growth in women. According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology in 2006, elevated levels of prolactin may cause gynecomastia in boys and men, and lactation in girls.***

The following symptoms have been associated with gynecomastia in men:

  •     Pain
  •     Swelling
  •     Tenderness
  •     Nipple discharge in one or both breasts

In the worst-case scenario, mastectomies or liposuction may be necessary to reverse Risperdal gynecomastia complications.

Court documents indicate that a number of Risperdal lawsuit claims are currently pending in a consolidated proceeding established in Pennsylvania state court. A Bloomberg report from October 2012 indicates that Johnson & Johnson has agreed to settle five cases filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.****

Men or boys who developed male breast growth, a condition known as gynecomastia, after taking Risperdal may be entitled to compensation for any pain and suffering they may have endured.
