Risperdal and Invega: Lawsuits to Hold the Manufacturers Responsible

In recent years, Janssen Pharmaceuticals has been accused of failing to adequately warn consumers about the potential risks of two of their defective drugs: Risperdal and Invega. As a result, thousands of individuals have filed class action lawsuits against Janssen alleging that these drugs caused serious health complications.

Numerous Side Effects Reported

The two drugs in question are antipsychotic medications for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other psychiatric conditions. However, both medications have been linked to numerous side effects — including movement disorders (dystonia), weight gain, diabetes, elevated prolactin levels in males, breast growth in males (gynecomastia), and stroke.

Filing a Lawsuit to Recover Damages Caused by Defective Products

Due to these potential risks associated with Risperdal or Invega, individuals who took these drugs have filed class action lawsuits seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, disability, emotional distress, and other damages.

If you or someone you know has taken Risperdal or Invega and experienced any of the above side effects, it is essential to understand your legal rights. A qualified attorney can help evaluate your claim and provide guidance on how to proceed with filing a lawsuit against Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

The Time to File May Be Limited

Thousands of the lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson, which owns Janssen Pharmaceuticals, by men who claimed their breast tissue increased in size after taking Risperdal were settled by 2022. Time may be limited when it comes to filing suit. So if you believe you have a potential case involving defective drugs like Risperdal or Invega, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
