Testosterone boosters such as AndroGel, Foresta and AndroDerm have been linked to several complications, including heart attack, stroke, thickening of the blood and decreased sperm count. Patients experiencing severe complications from testosterone boosters can contact testosterone lawyers to determine whether they are eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturers.
Testosterone boosters are prescribed to treat clinically diagnosed cases of low testosterone, sometimes called “Low T” or hypogonadism. Men who suffer from hypogonadism experience severe fatigue, muscle loss and sexual complications. However, a 2013 Journal of the American Medical Association study found many patients who are prescribed testosterone boosters have not received clinical testing necessary to diagnose hypogonadism.
In January 2014, The Food and Drug Administration announced it would be investigating the link between testosterone boosters and heart attacks after the 2013 JAMA study found that patients on low testosterone drugs were up to 30% more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke.
