Testim® Testosterone Gel Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed

On March 21, 2014 a wrongful death lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana (Case 2:14-cv-00658) against the the manufacturer of the testosterone replacement gel Testim®.  The family members that filed the lawsuit claim that the victim suffered injury and died due to his use of the Testim testosterone therapy gel. The lawsuit claims the manufacturer, Auxilium Pharmaceuticls, Inc., misrepresented that Testim is a safe and effective treatment for low testosterone, when in fact, the drug causes serious and life threatening cardiac events. The lawsuit goes on to say that consumers of Testim were misled as to the drugs safety and efficacy.

Hidden Dangers of Testosterone Therapy Drugs

Testosterone drugs currently carry no mention of increase risk on their labels or advertisements. Recent studies have found that Testosterone therapy significantly increases the risk of heart attack in older men with a history of heart disease. These findings have prompted some experts to call for more extensive warning labels on such drugs. After these findings the Food and Drug Administration decided to reassess the safety of testosterone therapy drugs.
