testosterone drug death

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.

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.
