What Is Axiron?
It is a testosterone supplement made and distributed by Lilly USA, LLC, an international pharmaceutical company with operations all over the world. The drug is a topical solution that is applied to the skin which allows testosterone to be slowly absorbed by the body. This is advertised as both a safe and effective way 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 Lilly USA, LCC to consumers. Many men would not have used this supplement if the potential harm and risk of death were made known. To a large portion of the public, the benefits seemed to clearly outweigh the risks associated with using it for testosterone replacement therapy.
What Are Serious Axiron Complications?
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
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Blood clots
Does Axiron Cause Heart Attacks?
Testosterone replacement therapy drugs may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke according to recent medical studies. These conditions also put a man using the testosterone supplement at an increased risk of death. Ongoing studies are expected to find additional risks and complications caused by testosterone drugs.
What are the Criteria for Filing a Testosterone Lawsuit?
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.
Testosterone therapy, such as the prescription topical treatments Androgel, Testim 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.
