The side effects of Risperdal number in the dozens, and can be seen on this WebMD page.  The side effects that concern us at The Consumer Justice Group, are the ones so severe, that hundreds of lawsuits have been brought against Johnson and Johnson. These include:

  • Gynecomastia – The growth of breasts on males, and may include lactation. This is due to elevated levels of the hormone prolactin. Often the only treatment is surgery; either liposuction or a full mastectomy.

  • Diabetes
