My husband was on a bunch of ADHD medicines as a child and he now has breasts. He is not a large guy. We don’t know what medicines he was on as a child as we no longer speak to his parents. Is this something you could help us with?

My son has taken multiple ADHD medications since the age of 3 he is now 16yrs. Between the age of 11 and 12 or since he started puberty he started developing breasts. He is very self conscious of his chest. He wears baggy shirts so kids at school will stop making fun of him. How would I know if I qualify for this class action suit? My husband and I are planning to take him to the doctor to see if there is anything that can be done about this. My son is a great kid and we can’t have this standing in his way. A few medications he has taken are:
Vyvance
Adderall
Ritalin
