Our dangerous drug lawyers are investigating cases for men who have suffered serious medical complications after using the Testopel pellet. Recent medical studies have shown testosterone drugs, like Testopel, can increase the risk of heart attack, ischemic stroke, blood clots, and even death. These risks 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. Several dangerous drug lawsuits have already been filed seeking compensation for harmed caused by the testosterone supplement.
The drug comes in the form of a pellet, which is implanted by a health care provider underneath the patient’s skin in a fatty area where the reservoir of testosterone can seep into the skin. It is advertised as a safe and effective way to take the drug. The manufacturers say that their pellets protect other people from accidentally coming into contact with it during normal daily activities.
The Testopel drug is made and distributed by the Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., an international pharmaceutical company with sales all over the world. The company had total product sales of over $233 million dollars in 2012 and trades as ACT on the New York Stock Exchange.
