The popularity of prescription testosterone therapy products has substantially increased in recent years. The products, which may include topical gels, patches, pills, injections, and more, are marketed to help men suffering from signs of low testosterone, otherwise known as Low T. Pharmaceutical manufacturers assert that testosterone therapy products are effective in treating symptoms such as depression, decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, increased body fat levels, low energy, and more. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently been investigating an increased risk of life-threatening cardiovascular events in users of testosterone therapy products. If you have suffered an adverse medical event because of Low T products, consult an experienced pharmaceutical attorney at the Dolman Law Group, to discuss a possible legal claim.
The most common allegations regarding dangerous conditions caused by testosterone therapy products include:
If a patient suffers any of these dangerous adverse health events, it may result in extended hospital stays, medical treatment, rehabilitation and more.
In addition to allegations of harmful side effects, lawsuits additionally claim that Low T products do not actually provide a medical benefit for most users. Low testosterone is only a medical condition when the hormone drops to a dramatic degree. Most men who are being prescribed testosterone therapy products may simply be experiencing low libido, fatigue, and other symptoms due to natural age progression, and not because they actually have low testosterone. However, pharmaceutical companies are marketing testosterone therapy to treat such symptoms when the drugs may be completely unnecessary. This means that many men unknowingly expose themselves to serious risks of harmful side effects for only minimal health benefits.
