that can stem from the use of Testim for hormone treatment, including:
2009 — Through a boxed warning, all secondary exposure risks were to be made
clear on all packaging of Testim. Additionally, precautions for use, information
for patients, and any adverse reactions must be made clear to any consumers
of this product.
