The antipsychotic drug Risperdal has been linked to breast development in young boys. Psychopharmacology published first study results in January 1999, associating Risperdal with gynecomastia. The study reported Risperdal caused gynecomastia when used in conjunction with the antidepressant Prozac, which contains fluoxetine. Patients who have developed Risperdal gynecomastia are encouraged to speak with an experienced pharmaceutical injury attorney immediately. Risperdal has been proven to cause breast development in young boys, or pituitary cancer and tumors. Other symptoms of Risperdal caused gynecomastia include pain, tenderness, or swelling of the breasts, and/or nipple discharge. Gynecomastia can be emotionally and psychologically damaging, and may require surgical correction. If you or a loved one have taken Risperdal to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or behavioral issues associated with autism, you may be entitled to cash compensation.
