(Scroll down for video) A man announced his plans to sue drug giant Johnson & Johnson after allegedly growing breasts as a result of one of their drugs.
26-year-old Eddie Bible is one of the 13,000 men who are suing the drug giant for failing to disclose the side effects of the drug Risperdal.
Risperdal is an anti-psychotic medicine, which works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Risperdal is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder.
The drug can also be used in autistic children to treat symptoms of irritability. Bible claims that he was prescribed the drug when he was 13 years old.
After taking the medication for several months, his breasts grew larger than the girls in his class. As a result, he stopped attending gym classes out of fear of being ridiculed by his classmates over his large breasts.
The other men also made similar complaints.
The men are asking for financial damages as the Johnson & Johnson failed to disclose that the drug could cause large breasts in men.
