Serious Side Effects Linked to Testosterone Therapy

Although many people are taking testosterone therapy drugs, some don’t realize that these medications have been linked to serious side effects.

Earlier this year, the Federal Drug Administration announced that they would investigate cardiovascular complications as a result of FDA approved testosterone therapy drugs.

It is believed that these drugs can have serious heart related side effects, such as:

  • stroke,
  • pulmonary embolism,
  • heart attack,
  • and even death.

These findings were the result of a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in November 2013. The study concluded that older men with a heart condition were at a 30 percent increased risk of stroke, pulmonary embolism, heart attack, and death. According to the FDA, there is a 50 percent increase in risk for those with heart conditions who take testosterone therapy drugs.
