What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition where boys who are taking Risperdal develop breasts as a result of an increase in prolactin levels.
Considerably, this is a serious problem and has caused severe trauma to young boys and has even resulted in breast reduction surgeries.
Treatments and Causes of Gynecomastia
Mild cases have been resolved with liposuction, while more severe cases may require a total mastectomy.
When patients have suffered complications as a result of taking Risperdal, they have the right to file a claim against Johnson & Johnson for not adequately warning patients of the risks associated with the drug.
How to File a Risperdal Lawsuit
Currently, Brooks Law Group is assisting people in filing claims against not only Johnson & Johnson but their subordinate company, Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
Patients were not warned of the serious health risks associated with taking the antipsychotic drug when it was marketed to them. We have found this to be the pattern with many defective drugs on the market.
