Risperdal is an atypical anti-psychotic drug designed to manage the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Over recent years, however, more and more lawsuits have been filed against its maker Johnson & Johnson due to allegations that it can cause severe health risks, including pancreatitis.
The pancreas is a gland behind the stomach that is responsible for releasing enzymes essential for digestion. When this gland becomes inflamed, pancreatitis occurs. Pancreatitis is a life-threatening medical condition that can lead to pancreatic cancer, diabetes, infection, and more. The primary symptom of pancreatitis is abdominal pain. The pain is likely to get worse after eating and may sometimes be felt as pain in the back. Individuals with this condition may also experience other accompanying symptoms, such as vomiting and nausea.
