Risperdal Lawyers Investigating Claims of Gynecomastia (Male Breast Growth)
The attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating allegations that Risperdal, a drug used to treat schizophrenia, may cause gynecomastia, or breast growth, in young males.
If you have taken Risperdal and suffered from gynecomastia, please visit ClassAction.org today and report your complaints. ClassAction.org is a website dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers and keeping them informed of product recalls and emerging litigation.
Risperdal is an anti-psychotic medication prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. There are a number of risks and side effects inherent to each anti-psychotic medication and federal law requires a complete list of possible side effects, as well as a black box warning to alert patients to its potentially lethal side effects, to be included on these drugs. Some men who have taken Risperdal and suffered gynecomasita, however, say they were not adequately warned of the possibility of this side effect.
Gynecomastia most commonly occurs during puberty when hormones are developing and increasing. It has been alleged that Risperidal causes an increase of the hormone prolactin, which triggers breast growth. When this hormone is too high, which is likely while younger men’s hormones are still fluctuating, breasts begin to develop. While this alleged side effect is reversible through liposuction or surgery, boys and men affected by this development may be emotionally and psychologically scarred.
