TESTOSTERONE LAWYERS & LAWSUITS
Defective Drugs - Testosterone
According to new recommendations, millions of men are candidates for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The level at which doctors can recommend testosterone therapy has been increased to 300ng/dL, which also greatly increases the pool of available consumers. This has helped testosterone therapy grow into a $2 billion business in the past decade. Basically, if you are 45+, have a desk job and don’t exercise, you are a likely candidate for testosterone therapy.
Millions of men take testosterone supplements, but few are aware of the risks. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that men using a testosterone treatment were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use.
Over-promotion leads to over-use: In the past 10 years Testosterone use has increased more than five-fold in the past decade. This alarming growth is due in part to the development of new topical drugs such as Androgel, Testim and Axiron and the explosion of advertising.
Drug companies promote their Testosterone therapies by promising more energy and a better sex life. Who doesn’t want that, right? The stuff practically sells itself! But it has also hurt a lot of good people.
In most cases, the pharmaceutical companies did not properly warn doctors or the public about the degree of risk associated with the therapies, including heart attack, stroke, and death.
