Deep Vein Thrombosis From Testosterone Drugs Lawsuits
Our testosterone drug lawyers are investigating claims for men who suffered a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) while using testosterone supplements or shortly after discontinuing use of the drugs. A DVT is one of the serious side-effects of continued use of testosterone supplements. Conditions like DVT are life threatening and can cause death if not timely diagnosed and treated.
Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis is a condition where blood clots can form in the arms, legs and pelvic region. These blood clots can cause the veins to become completely blocked, preventing the flow of blood to vital organs like the brain, heart, and lungs. Studies have shown that prolonged use of testosterone supplements can lead to DVT.
The symptoms of DVT are often very subtle. Patients might feel tenderness or slight swelling in the arms, legs, or pelvic area. In many cases, symptoms are overlooked because they are less prominent. It is essential that timely medical treatment is provided for this dangerous condition, otherwise death can occur.
What are the Criteria for Filing a Testosterone Lawsuit?
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
- 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
