Did A Low T Drug Cause Serious Health Problems?

Testosterone therapy drugs have been linked to the onset of serious medical conditions, including:

  • Heart attack
  • Pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Stroke

In some instances, testosterone therapy drugs have been linked to death.

If you or a loved one suffered a serious side effect from a prescription drug intended to treat low testosterone, you may have a legal claim. Contact the Houston attorneys of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner online today or at (713) 222-7211 to discuss your rights.

Testosterone Therapy May Be Dangerous, Deadly

The use of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to treat low T, testosterone deficiency or hypogonadism is not a new practice. It has been prescribed to help men fight the decline in testosterone levels associated with aging. The advertised benefits include an improved sex drive, improved energy level, increased bone density and increased muscle mass.

But TRT is not without serious risks. A study published in January noted that all men over 65 who undergo testosterone therapy double their risk of a heart attack. Men under age 65 with a pre-existing heart condition may also double their risk of a serious heart attack by taking a low T drug such as:

  • Androderm
  • Androgel
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Delatestryl
  • Striant
  • Testim
  • Testoderm
  • Testopel
  • Vogelxo

Low T therapy is usually given by injection, gel or patch. If you are undergoing low T therapy, do not simply stop taking the medication. Talk to your doctor before changing any prescription drug program.
