Risperdal and Pregnancy

Risperdal and Pregnancy, Facts you should know

There are potentially serious risks involved when the drug Risperdal is taken by pregnant women. It is advised that patients notify their physician if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant while taking the drug.

During studies, rat pups with Risperdal in their systems had a higher rate of mortality than the control group. If these findings are duplicated in humans, it would mean that children of mothers who took Risperdal during pregnancy face a higher risk of young death or having the child being stillborn. The manufacturers of Risperdal only recommend the use of the drug during pregnancy if the potential benefit justifies the risk to the fetus.

If you or someone you care about becomes pregnant while taking Risperdal, it is important to notify your physician. It is equally important to be familiar with your legal rights. Do not hesitate to discuss your experiences with an experienced Risperdal attorney who can help you fight for justice. Your decision to work with an understanding lawyer may have ramifications that could benefit your family and the families of other patients taking the medication.
