Testosterone Lawsuits: What You Need to Know

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 28-Sep-2016

Testosterone therapy has become a billion-dollar business. Doctors often prescribe products such as AndroGel when men complain of fatigue, rather than finding out what is really wrong with their patients, many of whom suffer serious heart disease or vascular problems. Instead of properly testing and examining their patients, doctors rely on the easy diagnosis “low testosterone” to explain away fatigue or low libido in men. By attributing these symptoms to “low testosterone,” doctors fail to find out what is really wrong with their patients, and as a result men suffer serious, permanent injuries, some of them sadly and unnecessarily resulting in death.

If you or someone you love suffered a serious problem due to the use of testosterone prescribed by a doctor, we invite you to contact Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. to learn about your legal options today. Personal injury consultations are FREE and confidential.

Testosterone Products: Quick Facts

  • As of 2011, prescription testosterone sales reached $1.6 billion.
  • Lawsuits allege that low testosterone therapies are linked to various heart-related events.
  • From 2001 to 2011, the number of men with a Low T prescription tripled.
  • Some say testosterone therapy offers no benefits to healthy men.
  • A Boston University study indicated that older men who take testosterone drugs are five times likelier to experience heart problems.

Failure to Warn

Thousands of men have already begun to file lawsuits over testosterone products and supplements, saying they were not properly warned of the side effects. Some claim that pharmaceutical companies misled people regarding the benefits of Low T drugs. Many say their doctors failed to properly evaluate them, and instead relied on testosterone products, while they were really suffering heart or vascular problems.

Popular Testosterone Products

Testosterone products are often prescribed to men dealing with hypogonadism, infertility, low libido, and fatigue. Those products include, but are not limited to:

  • AndroGel
  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Testim
  • Testopel
  • Fortesta

Risks for Older Men, Questionable Benefits for Healthy Men

Research out of Boston University School of Medicine showed that older men taking testosterone drugs were five times more likely to experience heart problems than older men who took a placebo. Some believe testosterone therapies will not benefit healthy men, and could, in fact, pose more risks than any supposed benefits.
