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 Testim used?

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?
