Side Effects Alleged in Risperdal Lawsuits
Since Risperdal may increase prolactin levels in the body, the hormone responsible for breast growth and lactation in females, it stands to reason that the drug may also have the same effect on male patients. As a result, many males throughout the country may consider filing a Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuit to seek compensation for embarrassment, emotional trauma and medical expenses for procedures needed to remove the affected tissues including liposuction and mastectomies.
In addition to gynecomastia, Risperdal may cause other adverse side effects including confusion, fever, chills, sweating, and drooling. Patients have also allegedly experienced irregular heartbeats, stiff muscles and body aches, seizures and restless muscle movements in their jaws, eyes, necks and tongues. Contact an attorney today if you have suffered from one or more of these complications while taking Risperdal. You may be eligible to file your own Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuit and recover damages for your injuries.
Plaintiffs across the country are pursuing claims against the manufacturers, making allegations of negligence and fraud on the part of the manufacturer. According to those filing a Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuit, the companies knew or should have known about the risks of side effects, particularly gynecomastia, in Risperdal users. The drug makers are also accused of withholding evidence and failing to warn the public of the potential dangers of its product. Patients claim that they would not have taken Risperdal had they known about the risks of the medication prior to beginning treatment.
