Yes. Risperdal raises your prolactin level. Prolactin is a hormone. Pregnant and nursing women have very high levels. Prolactin stimulates lactation. So even if you are not having a baby your breast can leak because your prolactin levels are most likely raised due to the Risperdal. You can ask your provider to monitor your prolactin level... there is a simple blood test available. It is nothing to be alarmed about though.

yes risperdol can cause your breast to leak i am a witness of that. after starting risperdol my breast became tender and appeared to be bigger than usual and i call my self rubbing them to sooth the pain and a fliud escaped from them. i wasnt to worried because my doctor already told me that its a possibility that they would. my only problem was she didnt say anything about them hurting. they felt like they did after i gave birth to my daughter in 05 i was so upset i couldnt even lay on them. so your breast lactating is normal when taking risperdol so dnt worry

Breast leakage is not listed as a side effect of this medication.

I suggest you contact your Dr. when you have the chance and explain to him / her what you are experiencing.

You do not list your age or conditions, but you need to see a doctor immediately about this breast leakage. This one sign of breast cancer. Have you ever had a Mamogram? Is there tenderness or lumps around the nipple? Do you do self exams regularly? Is there a family history? All questions you need to ask yourself & be prepared to answer to your doctor. Good luck to you...

As Maso said, I doubt the nipple discharge is from the risperdal. That being said, it does need to be evaluated by a doctor. While it probably is a benign situation, nipple discharge can be indicative of a more serious condition. Please have your gynecologist evaluate the color and consistency of the discharge as soon as possible. For further reading about this condition, try the following link:
