Testosterone therapy has been linked to stroke, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, and even sudden death. If you or a family member has been harmed by testosterone therapy, the national pharmaceutical law firm of Blizzard Law PLLC can help.
Testosterone therapy has become an increasingly common treatment, with almost three percent of men over 40 in the United States having been prescribed testosterone therapy. These treatments for "Low-T" have been aggressively marketed by pharmaceutical companies, to the point where experts have begun to question the medical necessity of some prescriptions. Some researchers have suggested that the initial research behind the current clinical guidelines for testosterone treatments were inadequately small and the quality of evidence from these studies was very low. Critics have suggested that Low-T is a marketing device to push unnecessary treatments for what is part of the normal aging process.
In late 2013, the American Medical Association reported a number of alarming side effects connected with testosterone treatments, including stroke, myocardial infraction, pulmonary embolism, other clotting injuries, and even sudden death. Now, as there is growing awareness of the dangers of testosterone therapy; and, a number of people and families harmed by testosterone therapy are filing lawsuits to seek compensation for the harm they've suffered.
