Bio-T-Gel Lawsuits: Heart Attacks

Commonly asked questions about Bio-T-Gel (testosterone):

What Is Bio-T-Gel?

It is a testosterone drug produced and distributed by Teva Pharmaceuticals, an international pharmaceutical company. In 2012, the company recorded $145 million alone for their “other specialty” drugs, which includes Bio-T-Gel. In addition to this testosterone supplement, Teva Pharmaceuticals also manufacture numerous prescription drugs and generic medications that are sold all over the world.

It is a gel substance that contains a reservoir of testosterone. The gel is applied topically to the skin, and testosterone is slowly absorbed by the body. Teva Pharmaceuticals maintains that this is a safe and effective way to administer testosterone replacement therapy. Additionally, the company also claims that the gel protects other people from accidentally coming into contact with testosterone during normal daily activities with patients using the drug.

What Are Serious Complications Of Bio-T-Gel?

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

Does Bio-T-Gel 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?

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) products for men have been linked to an increased risk of death, heart attack and stroke.

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.

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
