    Risperdal reproached.
    Same saga here as Eli Lilly Zyprexa.
    Johnson and Johnson is a trusted brand we associate with babies.
    Risperdal,Zyprexa,as well as the other atypical antipsychotics, are being prescribed for children, even though this is an unapproved, off-label use. An estimated 2.5 million children are now taking atypical antipsychotics. Over half are being given them for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,many of these foster children.
    Weight gain, increases in triglyceride levels and associated risks for (life-long) diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
    Eli Lilly made $65 BILLION on Zyprexa!

    Was called,"the most successful drug in the history of neuroscience".

    Lawyers are behind all of this to do one thing ,really, and that's to make money from companies.Cl-ass actions are in reality a big money grab.
    Why don't these 'concerned' lawyers warn these companies what they have 'found' and say unless this changes we will sue. NO they do their case secretly to suddenly file then collect the money which is what it is realy all about.When is the last time lawyers sued for say 1$ just to help the consumer? No,it's always for millions and millions!Do they donate any of the money to orgs who are working for the consumer.NO! They are too greedy for that! Hyocrites!

      Hi Dr. A. Davis, Thanks for your comments. Here's the thing, typically, before a class action gets going, the companies are aware that they've got a potential consumer fraud lawsuit on their hands. Here's a great example–the Chevy HHR. We've heard from hundreds of drivers that their keys get stuck in the ignition and the cars won't shut off. Has there been a recall? No.… And many of these folks are picking up the tab for the fix. Many have complained to Chevy. Chevy's been worthless. Now, in this day and age, most companies monitor their online presence–so after a company has received numerous complaints to their customer service department/dealerships, to no avail, and then they can see customers are taking it to the web–to forums, to the NHTSA, and to legal news sites…well, folks, that's a company that's been 'warned', and hasn't elected to respond to help out its customers. So if, for example, if a Chevy HHR class action does eventually get filed, who's the bad guy? The lawyers? I don't think so. It's the completely non-responsive company. Feel free to ask the Chevy HHR drivers how they feel about this… To continue with your comments, you'll have to stop by our Lawyers Giving Back section… attorneys are profiled for their pro bono and charitable work. At many law firms, such work is an expectation of being part of the firm, and many attorneys give their time and money to causes and individuals–without seeking the limelight. Note–the attorneys we've profiled did not ASK US to profile them–we asked our readers if they knew of an attorney who did charitable work that most folks didn't know about–and we actually got flooded with responses. But you don't read about that in the press.

      Look, we all can question from time to time the millions of dollars that can be involved in a class action lawsuit, but there's more to it than meets the eye.
