What Is Delatestryl?
It is a testosterone drug manufactured and distributed by Endo Pharmaceuticals, an international pharmaceutical company. The company has a total of $30.5 million in sales in 2012 and trades on the NASDAQ American stock exchange as ENDP. In addition to Delatestryl, Endo Pharmaceuticals also produces numerous prescription drugs and generic medications.
It can be applied via injection or through a topical gel that is applied directly to the skin. The gel contains a reservoir of testosterone that is slowly absorbed through the skin after it is applied. Both the injection and the topical gel solution are promoted as a safe and effective way to administer testosterone replacement therapy. Endo Pharmaceuticals maintains that the Delatestryl gel protects against individuals accidentally coming into contact with the substance during daily activities with a patient using the drug.
What Are Serious Complications Of Delatestryl?
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
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.
