Risperdal Gynecomastia Lawyers: Cases Reviewed Nationwide
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are providing free and confidential consultations to review whether male children and young adults may be entitled to financial compensation through a Risperdal lawsuit after being diagnosed with gynecomastia, or male breast development.
Gynecomastia may occur as a side effect of Risperdal use, as the antipsychotic could increase the amount of the hormone prolactin in the blood. Prolactin is a protein hormone that induces and maintains lactation in women after they give birth, but it may cause boys taking the antipsychotic medication to develop breasts.
Have You or a Loved One Developed Gynecomastia from Risperdal?
Risperdal (risperidone) is a widely used antipsychotic medication which has been widely used by many children for treatment of bi-polar disorders, autism, irritability, aggression and behavior disorders. Many of these uses were off-label, and never approved by the FDA as safe and effective treatments.
It appears that Johnson & Johnson failed to provide adequate warnings and information about the risk of potential Risperdal gynecomastia side effects.
These problems often go undiagnosed when breasts first develop, because doctors or family members attribute it to weight gain that is also frequently seen with Risperdal use.
In many cases, breast growth from Risperdal can cause serious problems and consequences, often leading to the need for gynecomastia surgery to remove the breast gland.
The Risperdal lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are providing free consultations and claim evaluations for former users and family members. To review a potential Risperdal case for gynecomastia or breast development, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
