NEW YORK, NY — Elly Lilly recently announced their global settlement agreement after hundreds of lawsuits were brought against them for their testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) drug, Axiron. The health complications brought to light in these cases have also opened the door for other similar TRT drugs to be prosecuted.

Unigen Life Sciences’s TRT drug Depo-Testosterone is one such drug that is similar to Axiron and could be one of the over 6,000 testosterone drug cases pending in court right not for the risk of serious health complications.

What Is Depo-Testosterone?

This TRT drug is administered via injection, or through the skin as a topical solution. Both methods are advertised as safe and effective ways to apply testosterone replacement therapy. The manufacturers claim that their product poses no threat to other people coming into contact with the substance from a patient who has applied the gel to their skin.

Claims are being filed by men and their families alleging that the risks of the testosterone drug were not properly disclosed by Unigen Life Sciences to consumers.

Other drug companies such as Abbvie reached settlements for their TRT drug, AndroGel, citing similar issues with risk disclosure. Some cases went further to say that companies such as Eli Lilly and Abbvie used aggressive marketing tactics that downplayed potential risks, and made the topical gel seem to work like Viagra leading patients to ask their doctors about TRT drugs.

What Are Complications Of Depo-Testosterone?

Recently conducted medical studies have identified a number of potential risks and complications associated with testosterone replacement therapy. Some of these problems include:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Blood clots
  • Death

Does Depo-Testosterone Cause Heart Attacks?

Recent medical studies have shown that testosterone treatments may increase a person’s risk for a heart attack and stroke. These conditions also put a man at an increased risk of death. Additional studies are currently being performed and the medical community is anxiously awaiting the results.

Studies also show more complications that relate to Depo-testosterone.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Testosterone Lawsuit?

Although companies such as Eli Lilly have reached settlements, it is important to note that you may still be entitled to compensation if you believe you were harmed by a TRT drug. TRT products for men have been linked to an increased risk of deathheart attack and stroke.

Testosterone therapy, such as the prescription topical treatments AndrogelTestim and Axiron, are used to help boost testosterone levels in men who have a deficiency of the male hormone. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased libido and low energy.

Researchers found men who used testosterone therapy were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or die after three years of use.

A second study found that men had a significant increase in risk of heart attack and stroke in just the first 90 days of testosterone therapy use. Furthermore, men who started the study with clear, unobstructed coronary arteries were just as likely to have a heart attack, stroke or die as men who entered the study with established coronary artery disease.

The following criteria must be met for a patient to file a testosterone lawsuit:

  • Must be male
  • Must have used name-brand TRT only, no shots
  • Must have had one of the following injuries:
    • Heart attack
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Blood clot
    • Stroke
    • Sudden cardiac death
    • Pulmonary embolism
    • Deep vein thrombosis
    • Cardiogenic embolism
    • Blindness caused by blood clot to the eye
    • Other injury caused by a blood clot
  • If injury occurred while patient was taking TRT, must have been taking TRT for at least one month when the injury occurred
  • If injury occurred after patient stopped taking TRT, must be no more than 30 days since discontinuation of TRT when injury occurred
