Side Effects of AndroGel® Low-Testosterone Treatment

AndroGel Injury Lawyer

Over the years, the Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings about AndroGel® low-testosterone treatments and the adverse effects that they have had on individual consumers and secondary exposure victims, mainly women and children. If you know that you are experiencing complications, or if a loved one is reacting negatively to testosterone exposure, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit and receive compensation. At Morelli Law Firm, we understand that this time in your life can seem difficult, and we encourage you to retain the representation of an experienced low-testosterone drug injury lawyer from our firm today.

Testosterone & Risks of Cardiovascular Problems

Testosterone products such as AndroGel have come under recent scrutiny after several studies associated testosterone with increased risks of cardiovascular problems, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack

According to one large-scale study published in PLOS One, risks of stroke and heart attack in men using testosterone doubled, and nearly tripled in men with a history of heart disease. In response to these studies, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it would be evaluating the risks and benefits of testosterone therapy by conducting more research.

Call 888-396-4930 if you or your loved one has experienced cardiovascular problems after using AndroGel or other testosterone drugs.
