Risperdal (also known as risperidone) is a drug used by doctors to treat certain mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, insomnia, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism and depression. The drug was developed by Johnson & Johnson and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The drug has been linked to many concerning and serious side effects since its release, however. These range widely, including gynecomastia (development of breast tissue growth in men), movement disorders, pituitary tumors, heart disease, and diabetes. Patients throughout the United States have filed suit against Johnson & Johnson, claiming the company failed to warn of the possible side effects.
