The complications associated with Low-T replacement drugs include:
More than 1,000 lawsuits have already been filed by men who have suffered cardiovascular problems due to testosterone drugs. In March 2015, the FDA issued a safety warning that these testosterone drugs may increase the risk for heart attack, stroke, or death.
The FDA originally approved testosterone replacement drugs to treat hypogonadism, but many doctors and patients have embraced the claims that testosterone treatment can increase strength and energy for men who don’t suffer from hypogonadism.
Your doctor may have prescribed any of the following testosterone replacement drugs, which are usually administered as an injection, patch or gel.
Any of these drugs may have the potential to increase your risk for cardiovascular problems. A Boston University School of Medicine study found that men taking testosterone drugs were five times more likely to experience severe heart problems.
If you were prescribed testosterone therapy, you should talk to your doctor about your health risks. If you are already suffering from complications due to testosterone therapy, you should consult an experienced attorney about your potential legal case.
You may be able to pursue a legal case against the drug manufacturer to receive compensation for your injuries. Learn more about filing a claim and what we can do to help you fight for just compensation.
