Have you or somebody you care about suffered from gynecomastia after taking Risperdal (Risperidone)? Gynecomastia is a disorder which causes males to develop breasts. Brown & Crouppen is investigating cases of males who have suffered breast development while taking Risperdal.
Risperdal is an antipsychotic medication developed to treat:
- Bi-polar disorder
- Irritability and other behavior problems associated with autism
Risperdal stimulates the production of prolactin, which is a hormone released by the pituitary gland that stimulates breast development.
Gynecomastia is often permanent, meaning the only option is surgical removal of the breast tissue. The social and psychological injuries can be devastating, as well. Victims (especially adolescent boys) are subject to teasing, embarrassment and social rejection.
