Have You Experienced Significant Health Problems due to the use of a Testosterone Supplement?

Published on April 23, 2015 by

Perhaps you are a man who has experienced significant health problems while taking a testosterone supplement for low testosterone, or "Low T". You may have heard that these products have been linked to serious side effects, and you're probably wondering whether the supplement contributed to the development of your condition.

Or maybe you are the friend or family member of a man who suffered a stroke, heart attack or other deadly medical crisis after using these products, and you're wondering whether the medication is to blame for your loved one's medical issues and/or death.

Regardless of your specific experience with these drugs, you may have a number of important legal and medical questions about testosterone supplements, such as:

  • Did testosterone supplements hurt me or my loved one?
  • Can I find scientific or medical evidence of this drug's ability to cause serious medical problems, such as stroke or heart attack?
  • Did the manufacturers of these drugs encourage their use without properly investigating, acknowledging and/or disclosing their potential side effects?
  • Was I or my loved one using testosterone supplements "off label?" If so, who is to blame?
  • Can people who have been harmed by Low T drugs pursue compensation from the responsible companies?
  • If I have been harmed by Low T drugs, am I entitled to compensation? What is the next step?
