Invega (Paliperidone) & Gynecomastia

You may have a claim! Call a Kansas City drug injury attorney.

An antipsychotic drug, Invega is a paliperidone medication. It was created to reduce the symptoms of schizophrenia in adults. One of the active ingredients in this drug is prolactin, which is a hormone that makes women produce milk during pregnancy and grow breasts during puberty. One of the symptoms resulting from the injection of Invega is the development of breasts—in both males and females.

The Risk of Gynecomastia & Other Side Effects

Gynecomastia is a condition that can cause males to develop enlarged breast tissue. This issue occurs when the use of Invega results in an increased production of prolactin. Excess prolactin can do more than just result in uncomfortably large breasts for men.

Other side effects can include the following:

  • Impotence or sexual dysfunction
  • Discharge from the nipples
  • Breast pain and swelling of nipples
  • Firmness in nipples

In 2013, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $2.2 billion in criminal and civil fines to the Department of Justice for improperly marketing Invega to children, who had notably developed severe side effects as well.
