Testosterone Replacement Therapy Complications


Pharmaceutical companies have heavily marketed low testosterone “low t” treatments as a way to make men more virile and to combat the effects of having low testosterone.  Patients with low testosterone often indicate that they have symptoms such as:

  • Low Sex Drive
  • Tiredness and Fatigue
  • Reduced Bone Density
  • Weight Gain Around the Midsection
  • Depression

By marketing drugs and treatments that can reduce these serious symptoms, patients suffering from “Low T” are often convinced that Testosterone Replacement Therapies are the answer and that Low T treatments can change their lives.  While Low T therapies have successfully treated these symptoms in some patients, unfortunately serious injuries and complications have been linked to some patients that have undergone “low t” therapies.

The Journal of the American Medical Association recently concluded that there is an association between testosterone replacement therapy and adverse events such as mortality, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke.  The study by the VA showed that there are significant risks from taking testosterone replacement therapy medications and these risks include stroke, heart attack and death.  Other side effects include enlarged prostate, blood clots, liver disease and high cholesterol.

“Low T” treatments are taken orally, through injection or in a form that is applied directly to the skin and then absorbed.  These treatments are known by the following names:

  • Android
  • AndroGel
  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Fortesta
  • Androxy
  • Testred
  • Testim
  • Depo-Testosterone
  • Andro LA 200
  • Delatestryl
  • Depandro 100
  • Testosterone Cypionate
  • Testosterone Enanthate

Patients that have experienced serious medical complications by low testosterone replacement therapies may be eligible for financial compensation.  If you or someone that you know has experienced complications or injuries from taking a low testosterone treatment, contact DeMayo Law Offices, L.L.P. today to schedule a free initial consultation.
