RISPERDAL OVERVIEW

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), developed Risperdal. As one of the most frequently prescribed medications, Risperidone generated more than $24 billion in worldwide sales between 2003 and 2010.

 

Are you a boy or young man, between the ages of 13 and 25, who has suffered health complications after taking Risperdal? With the generic name Risperidone, this medication has been used to treat:
  Anxiety
  Autism-related irritability in children ages 5 to 16
  Bipolar disorder in those ages 10 and older
  Dementia in the elderly
  Depression
  Attention deficit hyperactivty disorder
  Insomnia
  Schizophrenia in teenagers and adults

RECORD SETTLEMENT

$77
Million

In July 2016, a Philadelphia jury awarded $70 million to Andrew Yount, a Tennessee teen who blamed Risperdal for causing him to develop female-size breasts. A judge later ordered Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen unit to pay an additional $7 million. Yount sued Janssen in April 2013. His lawyers told jurors he started taking Risperdal at age 5 to treat a psychiatric disorder. He never received a warning about breast development, they said.

SIDE EFFECTS

Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Risperdal in 1993, serious side effects have been reported. Risperdal was intended to address some complex health issues. However, Risperidone may increase the risk of health issues. Since April 2005, warnings on Risperdal boxes indicated that seniors with dementia who take antipsychotic medications may have a mini- or full-blown stroke. An increased risk of fatalities may also result after using Risperidone.

FDA WARNINGS

Multiple studies, FDA warnings and recalls have pointed to the dangerous side effects of Risperdal.

Since 1999, studies have connected Risperdal to an increased risk of diabetes. Researchers found that about 50% of patients taking Risperdal developed diabetes after 1 year of taking the drug. Diabetes can lead to other serious health problems including stroke, heart attack and other cardiovascular complications.

In April 2013, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed that gynecomastia also had a negative impact on these adolescents’ social interactions, mental state of mind and sense of self worth, which could last a lifetime.
