Testosterone therapy has become an increasingly popular form of therapy. It is used by men with low T-levels. It is also used by many professional athletes who wish to enhance their performance. Testosterone therapy is prescribed to men who have low levels of testosterone due to either male primary hypogonadism (which is a low testosterone level) or male secondary hypogonadism. Testosterone supplements and products come in many forms: patches, gels, injections, creams, oral pills, or powders.
The problem with testosterone is that many men use it without having any medical conditions. It is marketed by drug companies to make older men more youthful and to increase overall sexual and physical performance. This makes it very dangerous because most men will overuse the products.
The side effects from using this therapy include cardiac arrest, stroke, and other heart issues. Death can even occur because of this therapy. If you have an active NuvaRing case and have hired a lawyer, we can help. To get started, give us a call at (866) 494-0370 or apply online.
Androgel Testosterone Lawsuit News & Updates (2016) – an Overview of the Lawsuit and Recent Settlements
Testosterone products have become very popular in society. Companies usually focus on marketing the benefits of the product without warning against using the product without a specific need. They also don’t warn of overuse of the product. Leading Testosterone producer AbbVie spent $80 million on AndroGel ads in 2012. In the same year, the sale of prescription testosterone gels topped $2 billion in the US. Many experts in the industry believe that sales will more than double by 2017.
As you can see the figures for testosterone sales and use are staggering. Recently the FDA issued a warning over the testosterone injection product Aveed stating that it causes serious reactions. The FDA also issued a safety warning requiring doctors to prescribe testosterone only to men with tested low levels of testosterone.
In January 2014, a peer-reviewed research article came out exposing the dangers of participating in testosterone therapy. The following year the FDA announced an investigation of serious adverse events caused by testosterone replacement therapy. A handful of men filed lawsuits in the aftermath of those articles. Since then, there are more than 6,000 actions filed in the testosterone replacement therapy litigation. All the federal cases have been moved into one venue in the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. It is overseen by Judge Matthew F. Kennelly.
Many victims claim that manufacturers of testosterone products aggressively promoted therapy for unnecessary purposes. They also claim the makers encouraged the use of the medication without appropriate testing.
Another study found in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed a 29% increase in heart attacks, stroke, and death after having testosterone therapy. It’s clear that the makers of these products are not painting the whole picture of the dangers of it. The above side effects are the most severe, but other more subtle medical conditions that can result from T-therapy are:
- Sleep Apnea
- Difficulty breathing
- Impaired cholesterol metabolism
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
Because testosterone is a male hormone, women and children should not come into contact with gels because they can be dangerous.
