Risperdal is a drug used for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and irritability associated with autism. Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of the drug, has already paid out millions of dollars in legal settlements for false claims, promoting off-label use and fraud. The FDA has even issued a black box warning, a label change and drug safety communication regarding the drug. Scientists admittedly do not know what makes the drug work, however there are a number of potential side effects that are associated with it.
One of these side effects is called gynecomastia, a condition which causes the growth of male breast tissue. Patients most likely to be affected by this condition were given Risperdal in adolescence.
