There are millions of men who use therapies and treatments for Low-T. Low-T is the decline in testosterone production, and this typically happens as men become older. When the body does not produce as much testosterone, men will start to feel tired throughout the day. They may also have mood swings and see a weight gain.
Many men with Low T see commercials that advertise drugs that promise to reverse the low testosterone effects. The ads entice many men to try the medications because the man portrayed in the ad seems to always be in a nice car with a beautiful woman in the passenger seat. Many men believe the use of Low T medications, such as AndroGel, Testim, Axiron, Depo-Testosterone, Androderm and Fortesta, will enable them to retrieve their youth and energy.
Unfortunately, many low T medications are unsafe because of heart attack and stroke risks. The studies that have been linked to testosterone treatments caught the attention of the FDA. The FDA then issued an alert stating it will begin investigating the findings related to the hormone replacement therapy drugs.
The risks of heart attacks do not just apply to men who are older. In a recent study, men who were younger than the age of 65 were also at risk for having a heart attack, especially those who already had heart disease; their risk of having a heart attack would double after using a testosterone therapy.
If you or a loved one has experienced a cardiac event such as a heart attack or stroke after using a Low T medication, you may be entitled to compensation.
