What Is Fortesta?
It is a testosterone supplement that is manufactured and distributed by Endo Pharmaceuticals, an international pharmaceutical company.
In addition to Fortesta, Endo Pharmaceuticals also produces the testosterone drug Delatestryl, along with many other prescription drugs and generic medications. The company reported total product sales of $30.5 million in 2012 and trades on the NASDAQ American stock exchange as ENDP.
It is applied to the skin as a topical gel. The substance contains a reservoir of testosterone that is slowly absorbed by the body once it is applied.
The drug is marketed as a safe and effective way to administer testosterone replacement therapy. Additionally, Endo Pharmaceuticals claims that the gel protects other people from accidentally coming into contact with the drug during normal daily activities with a patient who has it applied to their skin.
What Are Complications Of Fortesta?
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.
