Suffering From Enlarged Breast Tissue Or Spontaneous Milk Production?
Risperdal (risperidone) was created to treat schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, the mixed and manic states associated with bipolar disorder, and the irritability in people with autism. Unfortunately, it also interferes with the body's hormone production. Specifically, Risperdal causes increased levels of prolactin, which stimulates breast growth and milk production.
Gynecomastia is corrected by surgery, involving the removal of excess skin and tissue. Severe cases may even require mastectomy. This can lead to further injury, such as permanent scarring and disfigurement.
If you are a male who is suffering from a growth in breast tissue (gynecomastia), an experienced lawyer can evaluate your case and help you receive compensation from the drug maker.
