Risperdal is a drug prescribed to treat psychological disorders such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. The drug is manufactured by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen, which is owned by Johnson & Johnson. It has been FDA approved since 1993. Per FDA approvals, Risperdal may even be prescribed to children as well.
Risperdal comes with risky and unsightly sight effects, however. Studies have shown that Risperdal causes gynecomastia, which is a hormonal imbalance triggered by the use of Risperdal. Symptoms of gynecomastia include breast growth in males, pain, breast tenderness, nipple discharge, and pain in the breast area. In many cases, gynocemastia must be treated through surgery. There is no question, however, that these unsightly side effects have negative impacts on individuals’ emotional and physical well-being, including one’s self esteem.
