Side Effects of Testim®

Are you experiencing side effects?

Low-testosterone treatments are unique in that not only can consumers develop adverse side effects, but non-consumers can have negative reactions as well. Because the majority of testosterone hormone treatments are topical, any accidental exposure can cause serious complications. The moment that you become aware of the any negative conditions that may be a direct result of Testim®, it is imperative that you contact an attorney from our team. We can work diligently to provide you with information regarding your condition and ensure that your rights as a victim are protected.

Risks of Stroke & Heart Attack

Several recent studies have associated the use of testosterone drugs – including Testim – with increased risks of cardiovascular problems such as blood clots, stroke, heart attack, and death. These risks have been identified by researchers in the past, and have garnered more attention from new findings. One study published in PLOS One found that increased risks for stroke and heart attack were significant; doubling in men over age 65 and nearly tripling in men with known heart disease.

If you or a loved one has experienced adverse cardiovascular events after using Testim or other testosterone products, allow a member of our legal team to review your case.
