Our dangerous drugs lawsuit lawyers are handling AndroGel testosterone supplement drug cases. We represent men who have suffered health complications from low testosterone therapy drugs. AndroGel is advertised for men who are being treated for “Low T", or low testosterone levels. The drug makers claim that it can effectively treat symptoms like decreased sex drive, lack of energy, and feelings of sadness.
The AndroGel gel is applied by men and has a small reservoir of testosterone, which is delivered to the bloodstream through absorption of the skin. It is advertised as a safe and effective way to supplement testosterone. The manufacturers say that their gel protects other people from accidentally coming into contact with it during normal daily activities. However, women and children can also be harmed if the gel is transferred to their skin by a man using the drug.
The AndroGel gel is made and distributed by the AbbVie Inc., an international pharmaceutical company with sales all over the world. The company had total product sales of $1.52 billion dollars in 2012 and trades as ACT on the New York Stock Exchange. AbbieVie Inc. manufacturers numerous prescription drugs and generic medications.
Recent medical studies have identified a number of potential risks or complications from the use of testosterone replacement therapy, including the risk of:
- Heart attack
- Ischemic stroke
- Blood clots
- Mood Swings
The risks of using AndroGel were not properly disclosed by the company to men who may have otherwise not taken the drug if the potential harm and risk of death were made known.
