Testosterone replacement therapy is recommended for men who have low sex drives, erectile dysfunction, depression, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and low energy levels. Common testosterone treatments include AndroGel, AndroDerm, Bio-T gel, Axiron, Foresta, Testim, Auxilium, and Striant.
Physicians have been prescribing these drugs since 1972. Testosterone therapy was most often prescribed between 2003 and 2010. In 2009, a study was ceased when the researchers found that the testosterone treatment increased the risk for heart attack.
Since so many manufacturers are involved in the lawsuits, each manufacturer must be addressed in a separate lawsuit. Some of the products were marketed aggressively, and others were not, but all exhibited similar side effects that could result in long-term damage to people who use the products.
Complications With Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone therapy is intended to help men improve their sex drive, decrease depression, and increase bone density, but heart complications have arisen as a result of the therapy. Many families have also experienced permanent injuries or even death. Strokes were also common complications. This is why families are seeking justice by filing testosterone lawsuits.
Low Testosterone Therapy Lawsuits
Since there were over five million testosterone prescriptions filled, there is a greater chance for lawsuits being filed. Many of these prescriptions were for people who did not need testosterone treatments. This was at a time when physicians were encouraged to prescribe testosterone treatments for ailments that were not approved by the manufacturer. The treatment and this practice was popular; so, many lawsuits were filed.
Many men are not aware of the risks, which means the manufacturers should be held accountable for the side effects associated with the products. The FDA has recently issued a safety warning for testosterone therapies until the dangers of the treatment are investigated. The lawsuits are still ongoing since the study prompted the initial lawsuits in 2009.
