Testosterone therapy is administered as a gel, patch or injections. Some of the products used in this type of therapy include:   

  • Androgel
  • Androderm
  • Axirom
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Delatestryl
  • Dep-Testosterone
  • Fortesta
  • Striant
  • Testim

Health Risks

As men age, testosterone production naturally declines. Low testosterone levels may result in lowered sexual response, lesser bone density and loss of muscle mass. Testosterone therapy is prescribed to address these issues.

Recent research has linked serious health risks to those undergoing testosterone therapy. Some of the risks include:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Death

In one study, researchers found men who used testosterone therapy were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use. A second study found that men had a significant increase in risk of heart attack and stroke in just the first 90 days of testosterone therapy use.

If you or a loved one has experienced injury as a result of testosterone therapy, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages the drug may have caused. The experienced lawyers at Hupy and Abraham are committed to helping those injured collected the compensation they deserve. Call Hupy and Abraham at 800-800-5678 today to discuss your legal options.
