Risperdal Drug Alert

MEDICAL ALERT: If a young male has taken the prescription drug Risperdal (risperidone) the following alert is for you and your family.

The drug Risperdal, when taken by a young male child or young adult, men has been linked to a condition called gynecomastia, or the enlargement of male breast tissue. 

Although gynecomastia is non-cancerous, the growth of male breasts can cause severe embarrassment and lasting psycho-social harm. 

Surgery may be required to correct the condition.
