Heart Attacks From Testosterone Drugs Lawsuits
Chances are, if you have watched television or listened to the radio recently, you have heard advertisements for testosterone supplements claiming to increase energy and sexual performance in men. However, these advertisements fail to make notice of the dangerous side-effects that have been linked to testosterone drug use.
On January 31, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it was investigating the risk of heart attack and other serious conditions from approved testosterone drugs. The announcement was brought on by a November 2013 study performed by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that raised concern over testosterone drugs and their possible link to heart attacks and other complications.
Heart Attack Lawsuits
Our testosterone drug lawyers are actively representing patients suffering from complications arising from testosterone drug use, including men who have suffered heart attack. These lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering damages, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
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
