Testosterone Therapy Lawsuit

Are you a man who has suffered stroke or heart problems caused by testosterone therapy? You may be entitled to compensation.

Testosterone “Low T” Treatment Lawsuits

The defective drug attorneys at Marc Whitehead & Associates believe adverse health risks were not properly disclosed to men who may have otherwise not used these treatments.

Our lawyers are actively filing claims on behalf of men and their families across the country, who have suffered serious harm while using prescription testosterone supplements. Testosterone side effects include

  • heart attack
  • stroke
  • transient ischemic attacks (mini-strokes)
  • pulmonary embolism
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • other serious clots
  • arrhythmia
  • death

If you or a family member have experienced a cardiovascular event while on Low T therapy, you may be entitled to vital financial compensation. When a manufacturer fails to adequately warn consumers and medical professionals of health risks (in order to keep the profits coming in), damages may be sought for your or a loved one’s pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income and more.

Marc Whitehead & Associates are ready to fight for your rights as consumers. We will do all we can to secure the financial recovery you deserve.

What Are Low T Treatment Drugs?

Several medications to treat low testosterone have been approved by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They are marketed in various dosage forms such as gels, creams, gum tablets, pellets, injections and patches.

Some of the most popular testosterone replacement treatments are:

  • Androgel – Available as a gel that is applied to the arms, abdomen or shoulders
  • Androderm – A transdermal patch applied directly to the skin
  • Axiron – Axiron is applied to the skin under the arm, much like a deodorant
  • Bio-T-Gel – A gel which seeps into the skin slowly throughout the day
  • Delatestryl – Administered as an injection
  • Depo-Testosterone – Administered as an injection
  • Fortesta – A gel that is applied to the thighs daily
  • Striant – An oral formulation (gum tablet) that works by delivering testosterone to the body through the mucosal lining between the cheek and the gum
  • Testim – A topical gel
  • Testopel – A pellet implanted under the skin, releasing testosterone for three to four months or even longer

While pharmaceutical companies shrewdly market these drugs by offering men a promise of physical enhancement, increased vitality and improved sex drive, all of these formulations can have serious side effects.

FDA Safety Alerts Regarding Testosterone Therapy

In January of 2014, the FDA released a drug safety communication saying that regulators are investigating the risk of cardiovascular events – stroke, heart attack and death – in men taking FDA-approved testosterone drugs.

On March 3, 2015, the FDA issued a new drug safety communication

  • FDA is now requiring testosterone supplement manufacturers to add information to the labeling about a possible increased risk of heart attacks and strokes in patients taking testosterone.
  • FDA warns that prescription Low T treatments are approved only for men who have low testosterone levels caused by certain medical conditions. The FDA makes it clear that the benefit and safety of these medications have not been established for the treatment of low testosterone levels due to aging, even if a man’s symptoms seem related to low testosterone.
