What are testosterone therapy medications such as AndroGel®, Axiron®,
and Testim® commonly used to treat?
Testosterone therapy medications such as AndroGel, Axiron, and Testim are
commonly used to treat low hormone levels in men. Generally, most hormone
treatments are designed to treat low libido, relieve fatigue and weakness,
correct erectile dysfunction, and help with depression.
How are testosterone therapy medications such as AndroGel, Axiron, and
AndroGel 1%, AndroGel 1.62%, and Testim are gels that are applied on the
back of mens' arms and shoulders. Axiron is a topical solution applied
directly to mens' underarms. Aside from gels and topical solutions,
other testosterone replacement medications can be applied via injection,
pill, or patch.
What are the risks associated with testosterone therapy medications such
as AndroGel, Axiron, and Testim?
Recent studies have demonstrated that the use of testosterone therapy medications
such as AndroGel, Axiron, and Testim can cause injuries such as
heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots. Each individual is different, so it is important that you work with an
attorney to discuss your case if you are experiencing any complications.
How can testosterone therapy medications affect women and children?
Secondary exposure to testosterone treatments can create extremely adverse
complications in women and children. Exposure can cause sudden sexual
development in prepubescent minors, cause aggressive behavior, and cause
changes in hair distribution or acne.
Can testosterone medications transfer to other individuals?
Yes. One of the most adverse effects of testosterone treatments is that
they can transfer to other individuals through skin-related contact with
patients using the treatments. In some cases, sharing of fabrics tainted
with testosterone can cause side effects as well. Women and children are
particularly at risk for these exposures.
Are there lawsuits associated with these products?
Yes. Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of some of these
products, and there will be more lawsuits filed in the future. In fact,
our law firm filed the first cases in the country relating to risks associated
with heart attacks and strokes.
What do I do if I am experiencing complications?
If you have suffered a heart attack, stroke, blood clots, or other complications
as a result of using testosterone therapy medications, you should contact
an attorney at our firm immediately as you may be entitled to compensation.
If a family member or loved one has taken testosterone therapy medications
and suffered an injury, am I entitled to compensation?
You may be entitled to compensation if a family member or loved one has
suffered serious injuries such as heart attacks, strokes, blood clots,
or other complications as a result of using testosterone therapy medications,
and should contact an attorney at our firm immediately.
