Find a Testosterone Therapy Lawyer
Testosterone therapy is supposed to help men maintain their energy, health and hair. Some studies suggest it may lead to strokes and heart attacks instead.
If you had a stroke, heart attack or other cardiovascular injury while taking testosterone therapy, you may want to talk with a lawyer.
At least three studies have found a possible link between heart problems and the use of testosterone therapy. In fact, the FDA has issued a warning that consumers need to be warned of the increased risk of heart attack or stroke that may come with the use of testosterone therapy.
However, it does not appear drug manufacturers clearly conveyed the potential risk in the past.
Now hundreds of men who took AndroGel, Axiron and other testosterone therapies are suing drug manufacturers for compensation related to their medical problems.
If you had a heart attack or stroke while taking testosterone therapy, you may have experienced the following:
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
Shouldn’t you be compensated if it’s determined the manufacturers withheld information on the safety of testosterone therapy?
