Risperdal

Risperdal (risperidone) is an oral antipsychotic medication used to control severe mood disorders, including schizophrenia and manic bipolar disorder. It is also sometimes used in combination with antidepressants to control depression. Risperdal was manufactured by the Janssen unit of Johnson & Johnson. It was approved by the FDA in 1993. Since then, it has been approved to treat several other psychiatric disorders. This drug has been know to cause gynecomastia which is severe enlargement of glandular tissue in the breast. Many times surgery is required to “cure” or “treat” this condition. If you or a loved one suffered from gynecomastia after using the Risperdal, call The Goss Law Firm, P.C. for a free consultation.
