Dangerous Drugs: Risperdal (VIDEO)
In the video below, The Carlson Law Firm’s Mass Torts Case Manager Courtney Siebert discusses the risks associated with taking Risperdal.
What is Risperdal?
Risperdal, a brand name for a drug called risperidone, is a medication used to treat patients suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability that derives from autism. The drug can be taken by mouth or by injection. Recent reports have proven that when this drug is taken by young boys or men, the levels of prolactin, a hormone which causes breast growth in women, increase exponentially, causing male consumers to develop breasts that resemble the breasts of women.
Additionally, a study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology states that this drug, when administered to young men or male adolescents, can also delay puberty. As a result, physicians should be extremely cautious when prescribing such medication to adolescents or children. If you or someone you love was affected by Risperdal, our Risperdal lawsuit attorneys in Texas can help you pursue monetary compensation for any harms or side effects that have occurred due to consumption of such medication.
