FDA Warnings Regarding AndroGel®

Low-Testosterone Drug Injury Attorney

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued various warnings regarding AndroGel® testosterone gel. This topical gel is provided to men in order to help rebalance the male hormone testosterone. Although there have been various complaints and cases of adverse side effects in men, women, and children, the drug is still prescribed to patients today. If you know that you are reacting negatively to AndroGel treatments, or if a family member has been exposed and experienced side effects, contact a trusted low-testosterone drug injury attorney from Morelli Law Firm today.

Throughout the years since its FDA approval, AndroGel has been the subject of several warnings to consumers. The current packaging reflects the changes that have been made over the years.

Some of the recent changes to AndroGel's packaging include:

  • 2009 — A mandatory black box warning was required to be prominently displayed on all prescriptions of AndroGel. This warning clearly states the effects that the prescription can have on children and women. Text regarding patient counseling information was also provided with the prescription.
  • 2011 — In March of 2011, it was advised that users wait at least 5 hours before entering a pool or showering after using the medication. In November of the same year, the warning was added for not only AndroGel 1% but also AndroGel 1.62%.
  • 2012 — An updated version of the container system was required for all packaging of AndroGel treatments.
