Testosterone Heart Attack & Stroke Lawyer
Millions of American men treated with testosterone replacement therapy may be at risk for heart attack or stroke. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has demanded that prescription testosterone therapy drugs be labeled correctly with a warning about the increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
Manufacturer Failed to Warn
Many of these testosterone replacement therapy drugs were distributed without a critical warning about the potential increase in the risk of heart attack or stroke (until the FDA mandated it in 2015). For years, men have unknowingly taken these drugs without adequate warning of the possible dangerous side effects. Those most at risk are men sixty years of age and older who have taken prescribed testosterone replacement therapy drugs.
A list of the FDA-warned testosterone therapy drugs can be found at the bottom of this page.

What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy, and How Does It Cause Heart Attacks and Strokes?
Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment involving the application of prescribed medications for men who have low testosterone levels. The medication is applied through injections, skin creams, gels, or pills. The medicines replace testosterone levels that often naturally diminish as a man ages.
Heart Attack and Stroke Risk Increased
Studies show that testosterone replacement therapy drugs may increase the risk of heart attack and stroke by up to 50 percent in men. These findings were established in 2010, but the FDA did not require a warning to be placed on the medicines until 2015.
Negligent Testosterone Therapy Manufacturers
The testosterone manufacturers are accused of delaying the warnings even though sufficient evidence of the potentially deadly side effects of stroke and heart attack were evident. Many men may have chosen alternatives methods to treat their testosterone deficiency had they been properly warned of the potential side effects.
