Risperdal company owes South Carolina $124 million

It appears that Janssen Pharmaceuticals and other defendants behind the manufacture and marketing of the antipsychotic drug Risperdal (risperidone) owe the state of South Carolina $124 million. The U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 11 refused to review Janssen's appeal of a $124 million civil penalty that the state imposed for not disclosing the drug's risks, notably the risk of the enlargement of male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia.

Federal court's drug marketing ruling a Risperdal reminder

An Aug. 7 ruling by a federal district court in New York raised the issue of whether a drug company is culpable of "misbranding" a drug, in violation of federal regulations, when the company markets the drug for a purpose unapproved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The case did not address in any way U.S. Justice Department and FDA proceedings in regard to the antipsychotic Risperdal, but it did address the broader issue of how far a drug company can go in the so-called "off-label" marketing of its product.

Risperdal victim awarded $2.5 million

Alabama native Austin Pledger started taking the antipsychotic Risperdal in 2002, when he was 8 years old, to treat autism symptoms. By the time he was a teenager, Pledger had been diagnosed with gynecomastia, the abnormal development of breasts in men. Reportedly, Pledger's breasts reached size 46DD. Instead of suffering in silence, the patient and his mother sought justice, as Risperdal clients of the law firm of Reich & Binstock also have done. And two months ago, a jury saw things Pledger's way.
