Children Display Psychological Trauma from Taking the Antipsychotic Risperdal

December 19, 2013

This video describes the story of a young 19 year-old boy named John. He began taking Risperdal when he was 7 for his ADD. Aside from other negative side effects such as aggressiveness, sleepiness, and bowel problems, John developed a condition called Gynecomastia—the growth of female breasts. His Mom mentioned that John even asked her if he was a girl. Unfortunately for many young boys like John who have taken Risperdal, this condition has brought on much grief and sorrow during their young years. Janssen, the company that makes Risperdal, is now being sued for marketing Risperdal for unapproved uses and for downplaying the risks of the medication.

Legal Commentary
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous individuals and families who are victims of Risperdal’s dangerous side effects, and the following psychological trauma. The breast growth has been said to be the cause of many psychological symptoms which impacts their quality of life. If you or a loved one have taken Risperdal and have experienced abnormal breast growth, we encourage you to consult with one of our Risperdal attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim that is pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Further questions can be directed to the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by emailing the lead Risperdal lawyer, Majed Nachawati at mn@fnlawfirm.com, or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.
