Testosterone therapy lawsuits are beginning to appear more frequently as thousands of men begin to report their injuries shortly after beginning treatment. New research has shown an increased risk of complications in men who have been undergoing testosterone replacement therapy, or low T treatment. The testosterone therapy, intended as an additional therapy for men with hypogonadism, could cause an increased risk of ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction (MI) or even death.
Testosterone therapy complications, while often minor and treatable, may lead to additional complications such as the development of:
- Heart disease.
- Heart attack.
- Sudden death.
Since the FDA released their safety announcement, men have started to come forward to discuss injuries obtained while undergoing testosterone replacement therapy. These men are looked at as pioneers of testosterone therapy lawsuits as more victims hear their stories and begin to come forward. The first lawsuits were filed against AbbVie, the makers of AndroGel.
More than 5 million testosterone replacement therapy prescriptions have been written in the United States. The therapy is a popular method of treatment for men, though many are unaware of the associated health risks. Those who have been injured are now holding the manufacturers of the medications accountable for injuries caused.
