Lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson Nationwide for their illegal marketing and advertising of Risperdal for pediatric use without having the proper FDA approval to do so.
Originally, Johnson & Johnson produced the drug Risperdal to treat adults with schizophrenia. While never receiving FDA approval for use in children, Risperdal was used by children to treat various behavior disorders including ADD, autism, bi-polar disorder, schizophenia and aggression among others.
The use of Risperdal was never approved for pediatric use, and Johnson & Johnson was illegally promoting its use prior to receiving any such approval. The side effects of Risperdal in boys and young men can be very serious; including gynecomastia – abnormal breast growth in men.
