DID YOU SUFFER ADVERSE EFFECTS FROM TESTOSTERONE THERAPY?
If you or a loved one have suffered a heart attack or stroke after taking a testosterone therapy drug, you may be eligible for a testosterone therapy lawsuit and entitled to substantial compensation.
Men who are using testosterone medication are subject to serious health risks and heart issues. Medical research has revealed a direct connection between testosterone therapies and heart issues. In fact, studies have shown that testosterone therapy drugs doubled the risk of heart attack among men over age 65 and nearly tripled the risk in younger men with a history of heart disease. Other studies have shown that men who receive testosterone treatments have a 30% higher chance of suffering a heart attack, stroke, or untimely death compared to those who do not take testosterone medication. Researchers are recommending that physicians use much more caution when they prescribe testosterone medication.
As men age, they see a decline in their natural testosterone levels. Men are prescribed a form of testosterone therapy when they are experiencing low testosterone production. Men with lower testosterone levels may experience decreased sex drive, poor bone density, and shrinking muscle mass. Testosterone medications are prescribed to help treat these issues.

FDA Warning About Testosterone Drugs
Testosterone products are FDA-approved only for use in men who lack or have low testosterone levels in conjunction with an associated medical condition and confirmed by laboratory tests. Examples of these conditions include failure of the testicles to produce testosterone because of genetic problems or chemotherapy. Other examples include problems with brain structures, called the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, which control the production of testosterone by the testicles.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires that the manufacturers of all approved prescription testosterone products change their labeling to clarify the approved uses of these medications, and add information to the labeling about a possible increased risk of heart attacks and strokes in patients taking testosterone. Health care professionals should prescribe testosterone therapy only for men with low testosterone levels caused by certain medical conditions.
