According to Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced personal injury law firm, on behalf of young men and boys who developed gynecomastia (male breast growth) allegedly due to Risperdal, court documents state there are more than 230 Risperdal lawsuits pending in a Mass Tort proceeding currently underway in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania. All Risperdal lawsuits filed in the proceeding allege Risperdal can increase hormone levels in boys and young men, leading to breast development. The complaints also accuse Johnson & Johnson of concealing the risk of male breast growth from patients and the medical community. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case ID. 100300296)

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) indicated Risperdal was introduced in 1993 and is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It wasn’t until 2006 that Risperdal was approved for pediatric use.
