Testosterone Injury Attorney in Arizona
Testosterone therapy has become incredibly popular among American men.
In fact, the number of men taking testosterone in the U.S. quadrupled
from 2001 to 2011. Although testosterone products – often referred
to as Low T drugs – have been widely used by millions of men, these
drugs have been found to pose serious risks. According to scientific studies,
testosterone drugs have been associated with significantly increased risks
of bloods clots, strokes, heart attacks, and death.

Low T Drugs & Serious Heart Risks
In recent months, there has been increasing evidence of the serious risks
posted by Low T drugs, which can include transdermal patches, injections,
and topical gels. Some of the most common Low T products include:
There have been several scientific studies linking testosterone drugs to
increased heart risks. These studies include:
A study published in the science journey
PLOS One stated that testosterone drugs double the risk of heart attack in men age
65 or older. The study also found that the risk of heart attack is tripled
for men with a history of heart disease.
A study published in the
Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) discovered a 30% increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in
men using testosterone.
After evidence of the link between testosterone and increased heart risks
surfaced, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a drug
safety communication that it is investigating the risks of cardiovascular events associated
with Low T drugs. Specifically, the FDA is investigating risks of stroke,
heart attack, and death in men who took FDA-approved testosterone products.
Learn More About Your Right to File a Lawsuit
If you or someone you loved has experience an adverse side effect –
including blood clots, stroke, or heart attack – or died after using
a testosterone product, you may have a right to file a lawsuit against
the manufacturer. Drug manufacturers are required to ensure that the products
they make are safe for consumers and that they properly warn consumers
about risks. Because many believe Low T drug manufacturers failed in many
ways to ensure the safety of their products and the men who used them,
many consumers have filed lawsuits.
