Risperdal, Invega, and Other Drugs Linked to Breast Development in Young Men
Studies have concluded that young men taking certain antipsychotic drugs have experienced abnormal breast growth as a side effect. These medications include:
These medications have been found to cause an irreversible condition called Gynecomastia, which affects young men who suffer from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or behavioral issues related to autism.
If you or a loved one has suffered from Gynecomastia – the growth of male breasts – after taking Risperdal, Invega, or any other antipsychotic medication listed above, you could be entitled to compensation for this condition that may require a mastectomy.
Millions have been prescribed this antipsychotic medication without being aware of the risks. Make sure to call our legal professionals today, especially if you were prescribed Invega between December 2006 and March 2010. Their label included no mention or warning of possible Gynecomastia side effects.

Know the Symptoms of Gynecomastia – Male Breast Development
If you or a loved one has taken Risperdal, Invega, or any other listed antipsychotic medication, we recommend monitoring for the following symptoms:
- Pain in one or both breasts
- Unusual tenderness in one or both breasts
- Swelling in one or both breasts
- Nipple discharge
Consult a doctor immediately if you believe you, your son, or a young male relative, has experienced abnormal breast development. The immediate health dangers associated with Gynecomastia include the possible increased risk of breast cancer and damage to the male reproductive system. In addition, there is substantial emotional and psychological damage involved with this irreversible condition.
It has been found that Risperdal, Invega, and the other listed medications were not officially tested for use in children, nor were proper warning labels used to address these side effects until 2008. If you or a loved one has taken Risperdal and developed male breasts, you may be entitled to compensation. Don't hesitate. Call us now. There's a limited amount of time to file your claim.
