There have been numerous marketing and advertising campaigns that make promises to treat “low T” or low testosterone with medications. The marketing campaigns lead men to believe they will be more energetic, more attentive, and better in the bedroom.
Testosterone replacement medications such as AndroGel, Testim, Axiron, Depo-Testosterone, Androderm and Fortesta can be a serious problem for men because of the adverse health risks. There has been new research that shows any prescription testosterone therapy medication, whether it is a spray, a patch, a gel, or an injection, that is used to treat low T can be unsafe because of the heart attack and stroke risks. The medications can also increase the risk of pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and death in some cases.
If you or a loved one has experienced a cardiac event such as a heart attack or stroke or a blood clot such as a DVT or PE after using a Low T medication, you may be entitled to compensation.
