Who Makes Risperdal?

Who Makes Risperdal?

Risperdal was created by Janssen Pharmaceutica, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, one of the world’s largest manufacturer of pharmaceutical, medical, and consumer products. Johnson & Johnson was founded in 1885, and by 2005 it was a publicly traded stock and a major component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The company was soon found on the prestigious Fortune 500 list as well. Famous products include Band-Aid, Tylenol, Neutrogena, and K-Y Jelly.

The desire to produce newer and better drugs faster than any competitors often causes some drug makers to sacrifice safety for expediency. Often, the manufacturers will go to great lengths to not discourage the so called “off-label” uses of some drugs in order to maximize returns on these billion-dollar investments.

What this means is that many drugs are used to treat conditions for which side effects of the medication have not yet been established. For example, Janssen did not initially discourage prescribing Risperdal to treat senile dementia, even though it had not been sufficiently tested on elderly patients. Similar atypical antipsychotics proved effective, but at the same time caused a significant rise in blood clots, strokes, and stroke-like events.

No company should ever produce a drug without ensuring the safety of the user.
