This is an anti-psychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Many boys and men that took Risperdal developed a condition called gynecomastia, or male breast growth. Please call our attorneys if you experienced these symptoms after taking this medication.
This medication may increase a certain natural substance (prolactin) made by your body. For females, this increase in prolactin may result in unwanted breast milk, missed/stopped periods, or difficulty becoming pregnant. For males, it may result in decreased sexual ability, inability to produce sperm, or enlarged breasts. If you develop any of these symptoms, tell your doctor immediately.
