Many men who have low testosterone will have various symptoms, including the following:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Little to no sex drive
- No energy
- Low muscle mass
Due to low testosterone levels and the willingness to want to feel better and regain the feelings they once had, men look for a remedy. Usually, that remedy is low-T medications, therapy, or any other treatment they feel will help. Sometimes men are prescribed low-T medications, but have not received a testosterone test before the medications were prescribed.
As with any new treatment or medication that is recommended or prescribed, the advantages and disadvantages should be weighed before taking them. In the case of low-T medications, the benefits should be weighed accordingly. There are many low-T medications that are unsafe because of heart attack and stroke risks. Low-T medications and testosterone replacement therapies can cause various other side effects, including loss of hair, testicle shrinkage, enlarged breasts, blood clotting, changes in prostate and acne.
As with any treatment or medication that is marketed and advertised, it is important that the companies are completely honest about everything. Unfortunately, that does not always happen.
If you or a loved one has experienced a cardiac event such as a heart attack or stroke or a blood clot such as a DVT or PE after using a low-T medication, you may be entitled to compensation.
