California Testosterone Therapy Claims

Testosterone Drug Injury LawyerATTENTION: Our attorneys are currently investigating potential lawsuits for California residents who have suffered from serious side effects after taking a testosterone therapy drug. 

Recent studies have shown that men taking testosterone replacement drugs may be at increased risk of heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, sudden death, and other adverse cardiac events.

On January 31 the Federal Drug Administration announced that they would open an investigation to research cardiovascular complications resulting from approved FDA products for use with low testosterone levels.  Initial reports have revealed serious heart side effects including but not limited to: heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism and death.

These revelations were the result of an observational study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in November, 2013. It was found that older men with underlying heart conditions were at a 30% increased risk of heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism and death.  An FDA alert suggests that there is a 50% increase in risk for those with heart conditions who undergo testosterone therapy.
