What is risperdal?

Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic medication prescribed to treat various mental health conditions, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autistic disorder. While Risperdal has benefited many patients, it has also been linked to serious side effects, most notably gynecomastia in males—unexpected breast tissue growth that can cause significant emotional distress and physical discomfort. This side effect, among others, has led to numerous lawsuits against the drug’s manufacturer, with patients seeking compensation for their suffering, medical interventions needed to address the side effects and other damages.

If you or a loved one has experienced adverse effects from Risperdal, particularly gynecomastia, reaching out to a Risperdal lawyer can be important in understanding your legal rights and options. A Risperdal lawsuit can help secure the necessary financial support for treatment and recovery, as well as hold the manufacturer accountable for inadequate warnings about the drug’s risks.

  • Movement disorders, such as tardive dyskinesia
