Testosterone Lawsuits

Testosterone Injury Lawyer in Kansas City

Testosterone drugs have become immensely popular over the past decade. From 2001 to 2011, the number of American men taking testosterone quadrupled. For many medical experts and safety advocates, however, the increase in men taking Low T drugs is concerning because the vast majority do not have a legitimate medical need and because several recent studies have associated testosterone with a significantly increased risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack.

Low T Drugs & Increased Heart Risks

Over the past several months, multiple studies have linked the use of testosterone to increased heart risks. One study published by the peer-review science Journal PLOS One in January found that testosterone drugs double the risk of heart attack in men over the age of 65 and triple the risk of heart attack in men with known heart disease. Another study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that men using testosterone face a 30% increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and death.

Low T drugs include transdermal patches, gels, and buccal systems. Common testosterone products currently on the market are:

  • AndroGel
  • Axiron
  • Testim
  • Androderm
  • Fortesta
  • Striant
  • Testopel

In light of increasing evidence linking testosterone therapy to increased cardiovascular risks, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety announcement on January 31, 2014 that it would begin evaluating the risks and benefits associated with FDA-approved testosterone products. Investigations are still ongoing, but many consumer advocacy groups have already urged the FDA to place warnings on testosterone drugs. Many injured consumers have also begun filing lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies that manufacture these drugs.

The Rights of Victims

Many of the lawsuits being filed against testosterone manufacturers are focusing on the recent discovery that these products significantly increase risks of cardiovascular problems such as heart attacks. Additionally, they are alleging that manufacturers used aggressive marketing tactics to entice men into using their products and that they failed to adequately warn consumers of risks.

Ultimately, pharmaceutical companies have the duty to ensure that their products are safe for consumers. When medications and drugs cause harm to consumers who believed they were safe, injured victims may have the right to recover financial compensation for their damages by pursuing legal action.
