Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Drugs Linked to Increased Risk of Death, Heart Attack, and Stroke

If you or someone you love has taken a testosterone replacement therapy drug that led to a heart attack, stroke, or death, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your suffering.

Several recent studies have indicated that there are numerous health risks associated with these drugs. These health risks included heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and mood swings.

Dangerous drug attorneys are now investigating cases of men who used testosterone supplements such as:

  • Androgen
  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Depo-testosterone
  • Fortesta
  • Striant
  • Testim
  • Testopel
  • Delatestryl

Lawsuits are currently being filed alleging that the manufacturers of testosterone drugs failed to warn the public of the serious side effects associated with their use.

These Lawsuits seek compensation for the physical and psychological harm, disability, lost wages, and medical expenses caused by the use of these products.

Lawyers are also pursuing wrongful death claims for surviving family members if a loved one died due to complications caused by a testosterone drug.

Settlements are expected to be in substantial amounts.

The Trouble With Testosterone Replacement Therapy Drugs

Pharmaceutical companies no longer have a passion for healing people and instead, they have become obsessed with making a profit. This mentality has caused thousands of deaths to be caused by their products.

Due to aggressive advertising by pharmaceutical companies, testosterone supplement drugs are being sold in record numbers across the United States to men who have lower than the normal level of testosterone needed to combat the natural aging process.

The primary use for any low testosterone (“Low-T”) drug is to treat a rare medical condition called hypogonadism, which refers to the body’s inability to produce adequate amounts of testosterone.

Attorneys allege that pharmaceutical companies, amongst other things, stretched the meaning of Low-T beyond its actual definition, ultimately making it synonymous with natural male aging.

Through aggressive promotional campaigns, manufacturers have persuaded thousands of men that they have Low-T, even offering them do-it-yourself diagnosis tests that consist of nothing but a set of simple questions.

Furthermore, these lawsuits allege that the manufacturers of these Low-T products have done little to warn the public of the serious side effects associated with the use of their products.

All of the companies responsible are currently being investigated, but one pharmaceutical company, Abbvie, the manufacturer of Androgel, is the first set to go to trial for causing patients to suffer severe cardiovascular side effects such as heart attacks and strokes.
