The Potential Risks of Heart Attacks and Strokes From Testosterone (Low T) Replacement Therapy Drugs

Testosterone Heart AttackMen who take low testosterone replacement therapy drugs may be at an increased risk of cardiovascular problems, such as heart attack and stroke. In November 2013, a study that was published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) prompted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin investigating the risks associated with these Low T drugs. Prior to this study, physicians didn’t know much about the cardiovascular risks.

If you or a loved one has suffered a heart attack or stroke after taking low testosterone therapy drugs, you may be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering. The experienced New York Product Liability attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. can help you get the full extent of the damages you deserve.

What Is Testosterone (Low-T) Replacement Therapy?

Men produce testosterone to help maintain their bone density, muscle strength and mass, distribution of fat, and production of sperm. When men are unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone, their physician may prescribe testosterone replacement therapy. In 2011, there were more than 5 million prescriptions for Low T replacement therapy drugs in the United States.

The testosterone replacement therapy may be prescribed as an injectable, pellet, gel, deodorant or patch. The New York Product Liability attorneys at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. are investigating potential lawsuits involving the following

Low T drugs that could potentially result in heart attacks and strokes:

  • AndroGel (produced by AbbVie)
  • AndroDerm (produced by Actavis)
  • Axiron (produced by Eli Lilly and Company)
  • Bio-T-Gel (produced by Teva Pharmaceuticals)
  • Depo-Testosterone (produced by Pharmacia & Upjohn Company)
  • Fortesta (produced by Endo Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
  • Striant (produced by Columbia Laboratories)
  • Testim & Testopel (produced by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals)

If you or someone you know has suffered heart problems or strokes from taking low testosterone therapy drugs, you should consult our experienced New York Product Liability attorneys to help protect your legal rights.

Cindy C.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
