Testosterone & Low T Litigation Attorneys
West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County
Millions of men use various testosterone therapies (gels, creams, patches, injections, implants or pills) to treat “Low-T” or “Manopause”, the natural decline in testosterone production (male hormones) that occurs with age.
As more men are getting older and feeling tired, weak, depressed and are experiencing erectile dysfunction, they are being bombarded by media and advertising campaigns on remedies to treat “Low-T”. In 2013, the market for prescription testosterone products exceeded $2 billion in U.S. sales alone.
Common testosterone therapies include AndroGel, AndroDerm, Axiron, Testim or other testosterone treatments.
On Jan. 31, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it would be investigating using prescription testosterone products. The FDA made this announcement after the publication of two studies that linked low testosterone treatment to an increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), heart attacks, stroke, or even death.
In March 2015, the FDA issued a drug safety communication to announce that new label warnings will be added to low T drugs about the possible increased risk of heart attacks and strokes, indicating that testosterone drug makers are also being required to conduct clinical trials to better define the potential cardiovascular risks.
