Safety Alert - Testosterone Drugs May Increase Risk of Heart Attack

Studies regarding "Low T" testosterone supplement therapies are grabbing everyone's attention, especially the FDA. These studies are indicating that men who use prescription testosterone drugs are at an increased risk for heart attack, stroke and death. The scientific evidence in these reports is so strong that the FDA has announced that it is launching its own investigation into the safety of the potentially dangerous Low T therapies.

Low T testosterone therapy has become a $2 billion dollar business in the United States as the manufacturers have launched aggressive campaigns advertising these drugs to help improve sex drive and decreased energy in men. It has been estimated that over 3 million prescriptions for prescription testosterone supplements are being written each year. But now recent studies are showing that the risk of heart attack, blood clots and strokes is doubled in men using these supplements. These alarming reports came from a study conducted at the National Cancer Institute and a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The JAMA studies showed that over 25% of men using testosterone therapy suffered heart attack, stroke, death or other heart related problem within three years of beginning use of the Low T drugs.

Lawsuits have been filed and the Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin PLLC is actively pursuing claims on behalf of men who used testosterone therapies and suffered heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or other serious cardiac conditions. The drugs we are investigating include AndroGel, Axiron, Testim, Androderm, Fortesta, Striant and Testopel. We believe that the manufacturers of these drugs failed to provide proper warnings to consumers regarding the increased risk of cardiovascular conditions associated with Low T drugs. Please call our office for more information.
