What are Some of the Signs or Symptoms of Risperdal Breast Growth Among Boys?



The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are pursuing Risperdal breast growth lawsuits for boys and young men throughout the United States, seeking damages from the drug maker as a result of the failure to adequately warn about the risk of male children developing a serious medical condition known as gynecomastia.

Many potential clients and families are not immediately diagnosed with gynecomastia from Risperdal, but rather experience symptoms of breast growth for some time before they become aware of the connection between them medication and their problems.

In many cases, these signs of breast development from Risperdal side effects are misdiagnosed at first, with doctors indicating that the problems are associated with weight gain, which is a known side effect of Risperdal and other atypical antipsychotic medications. This may result in a further delay in diagnosing this breast growth condition in boys.
