Male breast development, medically known as gynocomastia, has been linked to the use of the Risperdal drug.
The Risperdal drug is used in the treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, even though it has been known to be an effective antipsychotic drug, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported several serious side effects that users have caused harm.
