Stroke, heart attack and death are not side effects one would typically associate with the use of an FDA approved testosterone replacement drug or therapy. Unfortunately, the FDA has recently warned Low-T treatments can cause these very serious side effects. Now, an increasing number of injured men are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers of many low testosterone medications and treatments, claiming they suffered serious injuries as the result of previously undisclosed side effects.
Testosterone replacement drugs have become very popular. According to the New York Times, drug makers spent $3.47 Billion on advertising directly to consumers in 2012. Its estimated Abbott Laboratories spent approximately $80 million marketing AndroGel alone in the same year.
In their lawsuits plaintiffs claim drug manufacturers failed to adequately warn patients of the potential risks of taking the treatment. If you or a loved one has been injured due to taking a Low-T medication, you may be entitled to financial compensation. A qualified low testosterone lawyer can review your case and let you know whether you are entitled to recover for your injuries.
