Invega (paliperidone) is an antipsychotic medication that works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Most patients are prescribed Invega in order to treat schizophrenia. Unfortunately, medical studies have linked Invega to an increased risk for male breast growth in adolescent boys. This condition is known as gynecomastia, and can cause serious emotional distress for young men who are forced to deal with the complication. If you or your family have experienced male breast growth from Invega, you may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the maker of the drug. Settlements in these types of cases are expected to be substantial.
Invega is a similar drug to Risperdal, another drug used to treat psychological conditions.
Gynecomastia Diagnosis and Treatment
A family physician can help diagnose whether or not an adolescent boy is experiencing issues related to gynecomastia. Medications such as Soltamox (tamoxifen) and Evista (raloxifene) have been prescribed to help reduce this side-effect of Invega, however, these drugs do not carry high success rates. Often, young men will undergo breast reduction surgery to remove excess breast tissue. This kind of procedure can leave unsightly scars and does not always improve appearance.
