Risperdal Causes Young Man to Develop Large Breasts

We were contacted by the father of a young man who had developed large breasts over the past year or so. This teenager was taking a medication called Risperdal (made by Johnson & Johnson) and had developed a condition called Gynecomastia. He developed breasts that would be typical of a post-puberty female. As it turns out, many cases across the country allege the rapid growth of “female-like” breasts on their male children as a result of taking Risperdal. The allegation is that the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warning of this complication associated with using Risperdal. Risperdal causes a significant increase in prolactin levels which results breast development in some males. Unfortunately, these males typically have to live with the condition or require liposuction or mastectomy.
