Testosterone Lawsuit News
Men are filing lawsuits after a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) linked testosterone booster drugs to an increased risk of side effects such as stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism and coronary artery disease.
According to the November 2013 JAMA study, men who used testosterone drugs were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or to die during a three-year period than men with low hormone levels who didn’t take the supplements.
Testosterone therapy drugs include:
- Bio-T Gel
Low testosterone drugs were approved by the FDA to treat men with a diagnosis of low testosterone levels. The number of prescriptions has risen to 432 million, including refills, in 2013.
On Jan. 31, 2014, the FDA announced it would investigate the risk of heart attack, stroke and death in men using prescription testosterone products.
