The drug increases the body’s store of prolactin, the hormone responsible for breast growth and lactation in females. Male breast growth, or gynecomastia, is rarely a medical problem but it can result in shame, derision, and undue suffering for young men, as it can cause not only breast development but milk secretion as well. Gynecomastia also has many negative psychological effects, such as lower self-esteem, mental health, and social functioning.
Risperdal has been the subject of multiple controversies and disputes, and as a result, the FDA issued a “black box warning” on the drug—its strictest caution. Boys who have suffered from male breast growth while taking Risperdal may be entitled to compensation through a Risperdal breast lawsuit (family members as well may receive compensation).
Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic drug that has been found to cause unusual male breast growth in adolescent boys and young men. It is used to treat schizophrenia, Bipolar I Disorder, and autism in children and adults by altering the body’s hormonal balance.
