The Fort Worth personal injury attorneys at Anderson Cummings are investigating injury claims on behalf of men who used AndroGel or other testosterone therapies and suffered a heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clotting), and other serious side effects as a result.
Low testosterone, or low T, treatments have been linked to an increased risk of cardiac events and the manufacturers of these drugs may have failed to adequately warn patients of these side effects.
Did your loved one suffer a heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism or other adverse event after taking a low T treatment?
You could be entitled to damages for wrongful death or injury if this has happened and our Texas testosterone drug lawyers are prepared to fight for the compensation and justice your family deserves.
Low T Products Linked to Cardiac Arrest
These low T products were sold in different forms, including gels, patches, pellets, injections and pills. Did your loved one take any of these products that could have resulted in their heart attack or stroke?
- Depo Testosterone
Side effects can range from heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and blood clots. Any of these conditions could have caused the death of your loved one, and you may be eligible to file a claim for much-needed compensation if this is the case.
Does Research Exist on the Link between Low T Treatments and Cardiac Events?
Yes. November 2013 research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) studied the relationship between adverse cardiac events and the use of low testosterone treatments. This study examined a portion of 9,000 male veterans who were being treated for low testosterone.
The findings indicated an increased risk for heart attack and stroke in the men who were being treated with these products. The researchers conducting this study warned about these risks in no uncertain terms.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety alert to the public regarding whether the risks of low T treatments outweigh its benefits.
None of the FDA-approved testosterone products are approved for use in men with low testosterone levels who lack an associated medical condition, the agency warned.
