For thousands of years, marketers have sold products by appealing to the yearning men have for virility and longevity. This search for the proverbial Fountain of Youth has led to great discoveries. It has pushed humanity to discover exciting therapies, drugs and treatments for many ailments. However, this collective passion for anti-aging has also led society down dangerous paths and caused incalculable harm to thousands.
If you have suffered a cardiac event, stroke or heart attack while taking testosterone therapy (for “Low T”), this blog series can help you understand the legal actions underway against manufacturers of testosterone products, such AndroGel, Androderm, Axiron, Delatestryl, Depo-Testosterone, Fortesta, Striant, Testim and Testopel.
Research has linked these “Low T” drugs with many serious side effects, such as pulmonary embolism, stroke, heart attacks and sudden death.
The Low T market is a booming, highly lucrative drug market, worth billions of dollars a year to manufacturers. But science shows that these drugs can lead to substantial dangers for certain men. The side effects of Low T products have been categorically undersold.
