The prescription sale of testosterone is a big business - nationally reaching $1.6 billion in 2011.  The percentage of men 40 and over being treated for what has been termed "Low T Syndrome" has tripled from 2001 to 2011.  Recent studies, though, have suggested that "Low T Syndrome" treatment offers no proven benefits for healthy men.  Rather, it seems that "Low T Syndrome" is an invention of pharmaceutical companies designed to sell treatment products.

The risks of using testosterone seem to far outweigh the proposed benefits.  Medical research has advised that men using testosterone may be at a significantly greater risk for a myriad of health issues, including cardiac events such as stroke, pulmonary embolism and death. (Increased Risk of Non-Fatal Myocardial Infarction Following Testosterone Prescription In Men, published January 2014; Association of Testosterone Therapy With Mortality, Myocardial Infarction, and Stoke in Men With Low Testosterone Levels, published November 2013).  The FDA announced on January 31, 2014 that it will commence investigation on the risk of stroke, heart attack and death with FDA approved testosterone products based on the recent medical research.

"Low T Syndrome" treatment products come in a variety of forms, including topical gels, transdermal patches, bucal systems and injections.  There are more than 25 of these "Low T Syndrome" treatment products on the market, but the most common are:  Androgel, Axiron Testopel, Androderm, Fortesta, Halotestin, Androxy, Testim, and Striant.

If you or a loved one has suffered a complication from the treatment of "Low T Syndrome" please contact an attorney at Nager, Romaine & Schneiberg Co., L.P.A in Cleveland, Ohio.  We would be happy to assist you regarding your testosterone injury case any where in the United States.  Please contact us today at 216-289-4740 or Toll Free from Ohio at (855) Got-Hurt.

Testosterone products, which are prescribed to treat low testosterone (“Low T”) in men, have become popular among young men seeking physical enhancement and older men who want to counter signs of aging. Recent studies, though, have suggested that "Low T Syndrome" treatment offers no proven benefits for healthy men. Rather, it seems that "Low T Syndrome" is an invention of pharmaceutical companies designed to sell treatment products.

Far worse, there is growing concern that these products have serious side effects and long-term risks, particularly related to the heart. Medical research has advised that men using testosterone may be at a significantly greater risk for a myriad of health issues, including cardiac events such as stroke, pulmonary embolism and death. (Increased Risk of Non-Fatal Myocardial Infarction Following Testosterone Prescription In Men, published January 2014; Association of Testosterone Therapy With Mortality, Myocardial Infarction, and Stoke in Men With Low Testosterone Levels, published November 2013).

Lawsuits Filed

In March 2015, the FDA issued a safety warning that testosterone drugs may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products.

Over 1,000 lawsuits filed by men who say testosterone drugs caused their cardiovascular problems are pending in federal court. More specifically, men are filing lawsuits against the maker of Androgel and other Low-T product manufacturers. As the medical community learns more about adverse events from Low T therapies, drug makers’ statements about risks and benefits will come under more scrutiny.
