androgel lawsuits

Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie are dealing with lawsuits combined in Chicago over claims the companies hid the risks of using AndroGel, a testosterone replacement drug.

Abbott Laboratories, as well as its AbbVie spin-off, are both located in Chicago and are already facing a large number of related suits there.

The decision to consolidate the lawsuits was a big one and came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it will re-examine the safety of testosterone replacement drugs, such as AndroGel, after studies showed an increased risk of health concerns, including stroke and heart attack.

The consolidation will pull together lawsuits against all makers of testosterone-replacement pills. Other companies include Pfizer and Actavis.

Testosterone therapy may pose a serious risk to the men who use it, and the risk may even be fatal, new studies are showing.

The FDA has been investigating numerous testosterone-replacing drugs after troubling reports of higher rates of strokes, heart attacks and deaths from the men who have been using the drug. One such drug, AndroGel, reportedly caused a stroke for a gentleman who was using it; the victim’s attorney claims that the drug possessed no warning label signifying the greater risk of heart attack or stroke.

The FDA has not advised men taking testosterone drugs to cease the treatment during the investigation.

These reports have been rising in recent times, and they are concerning; testosterone therapy is undertaken by countless men, and if there is a greater risk for strokes and heart attacks—and even death—then patients have a right to know about it. The FDA should work hard to investigate these products and ensure they’re safe for consumers.
