As advocates for those facing serious injuries or death due to someone else’s negligence, the attorneys in our office became concerned after reviewing several recent studies that suggest a link between the use of testosterone replacement therapy and serious adverse cardiac events.
Recently, the market has been flooded with advertising for testosterone products that suggest a reversal of the symptoms of aging can easily and safely be achieved through testosterone replacement. This desire to fight the natural effects of aging have made testosterone replacement therapy a blockbuster market with sales already exceeding $1 billion annually, and the market for these products is expected to grow for years to come.
What has not been well advertised or warned of by drug companies, however, are the potential harmful side effects of testosterone replacement therapy. The revelations of increased risk of heart attack, blood clot, stroke, and death, among men using prescription testosterone replacement drugs prompted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in January 2014 to announce an investigation into the safety of these drugs and their risks to consumers.
The failure of pharmaceutical companies to properly warn of the dangers associated with their products and instead, marketing their products as safe and effective, has given rise to federal litigation against the companies on behalf of individuals who have suffered a cardiovascular injury after taking prescription testosterone. In light of this ongoing litigation, it is critical for the public to be aware of their rights and to understand the issues surrounding the marketing and risk of testosterone replacement treatment. It is our hope that this report helps serve that purpose.
