Risperdal and Stroke

Risperdal and Stroke

While Risperdal has not yet been proven to facilitate events or symptoms related to strokes in patients under the age of 60, elderly patients are encouraged not to take the drug. Studies have shown that elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with Risperdal are at an increased risk of cerebrovascular adverse events, such as strokes. In fact, Risperdal was suspected in 37 incidents of stroke-like events in elderly patients undergoing treatment for senile dementia, and tragically, 16 of these innocent people died.

The result of a stroke can affect the entire body of the Risperdal patient. Depending on the severity of the stroke effects such as paralysis, loss of cognitive function, emotional problems, speech difficulties and loss of mobility are likely to occur. In many cases, attorneys have found that off-label prescriptions of Risperdal can be a contributing factor to a client’s mental and physical debilitation.

If you feel that you or someone you love suffered a stroke or other cardiovascular event due to Risperdal usage, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation for your profound physical and emotional pain and suffering.
