Boys and young men who use the antipsychotic drug Risperdal may be at an increased risk of developing gynecomastia, a condition that involves abnormally large breast growth in males.
Gynecomastia usually requires a mastectomy or liposuction to remove unwanted breast tissue. But until that can happen, victims are left to suffer with this visible and embarrassing Risperdal side effect. The situation can leave a young person with permanent physical and emotional scars, and that isn’t right.
Families are now filing Risperdal lawsuits to make the drug manufacturer take responsibility for its failure to warn them about Risperdal gynecomastia. Each state limits the amount of a time a person has to file suit, so victims are urged to contact the Anapol Weiss law firm to protect their legal rights.
