Surgery: Gynecomastia is a surgically treated condition, there are no medications to make them go away, off label use not included. However, there are medicaitons which increase the risks of developing gynecomastia. [Alcohol, Marijuana, anti-ulcer and CNS-acting drugs]. Gynecomastia pertains to the breasts not just the nipples. Ibuprofen is helpful in reducing their puffiness.
