Gynecomastia, the overdevelopment of male breast tissue, is caused by many factors including age, obesity, steroids, and other illegal drugs. According to the attorneys at the litigation firm Flood Law Group, male patients have developed gynecomastia after taking the antipsychotic drug Risperdal.

Risperdal, a prescription medication used to treat brutal psychiatric disorders such as mania and schizophrenia, as well as depression, may be associated with the growth of male breast tissue.

According to an article written by a Duke psychiatrist and published by the Wall Street Journal, Risperdal has a higher link to gynecomastia in children and adolescents than any other antipsychotic drug. The link between gynecomastia and Risperdal has a lot of evidence for it’s case.
