As Risperdal lawsuits (http://www.risperdallawsuitcenter.com/ ) involving allegations that the atypical antipsychotic medication caused patients to develop gynecomastia (male breast growth) and other serious side effects continue to move forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a newly-published report has found that the use of Risperdal and similar medications has tripled among children in the last 10 to 15 years. According to Consumer Reports, many children have been prescribed these powerful medications off-label to treat behavior problems, rather than serious mental health issues like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The report also notes that drugs like Risperdal are being increasingly used in children under as young as the age of 2, and that a disproportionate number of prescriptions are being written for poor and minority children.

“This report echoes allegations that have been made in hundreds of Risperdal lawsuits regarding aggressive marketing of this drug for off-label use in children, and its potentially dangerous side effects,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently evaluating Risperdal lawsuits on behalf of young men and boys who may have developed gynecomastia due to their use of the drug.
