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.)
