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.

Risperdal marketing perhaps a case against FDA proposal

Public reaction has been overwhelmingly against proposed U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidance that would allow pharmaceutical companies to market their drugs with information that would contradict the FDA's approved drug warnings. Frankly, the manner in which Janssen marketed the antipsychotic Risperdal, which resulted in the imposition of criminal and civil penalties, may very well have been a case in support of those opponents.

Risperdal gynecomastia can be costly

The number of mass tort Risperdal lawsuits filed at a Philadelphia-based trial court has exceeded 1,200. There is still time for a Risperdal victim to contact one of the Risperdal attorneys at Reich & Binstock for a free consultation and possibly for the filing of a Risperdal lawsuit in order to recover damages.

Risperdal litigation proceeds

The holidays are over and as early as this month the Philadelphia-based Mass Tort Center at Pennsylvania's First Judicial District has scheduled meetings of the parties involved in Risperdal litigation.

Ex-FDA head's testimony looms over Risperdal lawsuits

Physician and former U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. David Kessler reportedly might testify in Risperdal lawsuit trials that may be held at a Philadelphia trial court. Kessler had submitted documents to the court consistent with the testimony he would have given in 2012 on behalf of the plaintiffs. But a defendant, pharmaceutical corporation Johnson & Johnson, settled several Risperdal lawsuits before trial back then.

Risperdal potentially damaging to male youth

The Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology in its December 2012 issue revealed a study that examined males ages 10-20 who were taking the Johnson & Johnson antipsychotic Risperdal (risperidone) and those of the same ages who took no antipsychotic. Researchers discovered that hyperprolactinemia, or excess prolactin, "is a common side effect in young males treated over the long term with risperidone."
