A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into the potential cardiovascular dangers and health risks for men who have had testosterone therapy, also known as low T treatment, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) or testosterone supplements.
According to various studies, testosterone therapy may increase the risks of a cardiovascular event, such as a myocardial infarction or heart attack, ischemic stroke, blood clots or death.
Testosterone therapy or low T treatment lawsuit and settlement claims potentially being investigated include cases of men who have experienced the following complications, symptoms, side effects and/or injuries after taking testosterone medication:
- Heart Attack
- Other cardiovascular event
Testosterone Therapy or Low T Treatment is prescribed to keep testosterone levels high in men whose testosterone levels have declined or are too low or who suffer from hypogonadism. Testosterone is a hormone that helps maintain men’s muscle strength and mass, bone density, red blood cell production, energy and sex drive, but as men age their testosterone level gradually declines.
In recent years, millions of prescriptions have reportedly been written to treat low testerone levels in men, and such testosterone treatments have been prescribed in various forms such as a testosterone skin patch (transdermal), a testosterone gel, a testosterone mouth patch, a testosterone injection or implant, and sometimes as a pill (oral testosterone).
Testosterone treatments and brands marketed in recent years have included the following testosterone therapies and low T treatments:
- Andro LA 200
- Andro-Cyp 100
- Andro-Cyp 200
- Depandro 100
- Durathate 200
- FIRST-Testosterone MC
- Testopel Pellets
- Testro AQ
- Testro -LA
- Virilon IM
Testosterone manufacturers include, for instance, AbbVie, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Actavis (formerly Watson Pharmaceuticals), Endo Pharmaceuticals, Pharmacia & Upjohn Company, Eli Lilly, Unigen Life Sciences, Auxilium Pharmaceuticals and Columbia Laboratories.
If you or a loved one had Testosterone Therapy, Low T Treatment, or Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) to increase your testosterone levels and suffered a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular, you may be entitled to compensation from a testosterone lawsuit or settlement.*
