Testosterone supplements are used by men throughout the United States. Over the past decade, these drugs have been aggressively marketed to men claiming that it will increase muscle mass and boost sex drive, among other positive benefits. Thousands of men take these supplements every day in an attempt to combat the natural aging process.
Testosterone products are produced and sold in a variety of different forms. Some of these include topical gels and solutions, transdermal patches, oral tablets, and under-the-skin pellets. Many men continue testosterone therapy for several years.
Unfortunately, recent medical studies have found disturbing evidence to suggest that these supplements actually pose a serious health risk to men. These studies have been able to produce findings that identify a link between testosterone supplements and increased risk of heart attack. Other side effects of the drugs include strokes, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, and severe mood swings. Some of these conditions can be fatal.
Testosterone replacement therapy drugs are sold under many different names. Some of these include:
What are the Criteria for Filing a Testosterone Lawsuit?Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) products for men have been linked to an increased risk of death, heart attack and stroke. Testosterone therapy, such as the prescription topical treatments Androgel, Testim and Axiron, are used to help boost testosterone levels in men who have a deficiency of the male hormone. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased libido and low energy. Researchers found men who used testosterone therapy were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use. A second study found that men had a significant increase in risk of heart attack and stroke in just the first 90 days of testosterone therapy use. Furthermore, men who started the study with clear, unobstructed coronary arteries were just as likely to have a heart attack, stroke or die as men who entered the study with established coronary artery disease. The following criteria must be met for a patient to file a testosterone lawsuit:
- Must be male
- Must have used name-brand TRT only, no shots
- Must have had one of the following injuries:
- Heart attack
- Myocardial infarction
- Blood clot
- Sudden cardiac death
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Cardiogenic embolism
- Blindness caused by blood clot to the eye
- Other injury caused by a blood clot
- If injury occurred while patient was taking TRT, must have been taking TRT for at least one month when the injury occurred
- If injury occurred after patient stopped taking TRT, must be no more than 30 days since discontinuation of TRT when injury occurred
