Risperdal®

Risperdal®

Risperdal® is a drug that has been on the market since 1994 and is approved to treat schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, and irritability associated with Autism. Invega is another drug that has the same chemical make-up as Risperdal®, but which was released under a different name when Risperdal® went off patent in 2008. Both drugs are used to treat similar things, and both have been known to cause the same injuries.

While Risperdal® is approved to treat the above issues, it has been prescribed heavily for off-label use, including for ADHD, PTSD, and as a sleep aid to patients taking other drugs.

Problems Associated with Risperdal®

Studies have shown that Risperdal® can cause hyperprolactinemia leading to gynecosmastia, or enlarged breasts, in men. Risperdal® is not the only antipsychotic that can cause gynecomastia, but Risperdal® has the strongest link of 70%.
