Striant Lawsuits: Heart Attacks

Commonly asked questions about Striant (testosterone):

What Is Striant?

It is a testosterone drug produced and distributed by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., an international pharmaceutical company.

The company reported total sales of over $230 million in 2012 and trades as AUXL on the NASDAQ American stock exchange. In addition to Striant, Auxilium Pharmaceuticals also manufactures numerous prescription drugs and generic medications.

It is administered in the form of an oral tablet, which contains a reservoir of testosterone that is absorbed into the bloodstream through the patient’s gums. This is advertised as a safe and effective way to apply testosterone replacement therapy. Recent studies refute these claims that the drug is safe, and many lawsuits are being filed on behalf of men and their families alleging the risks of using the testosterone drug were not properly disclosed by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals to consumers.

What Are Complications Of Striant?

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
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Blood clots
  • Death

Does Striant Cause Heart Attacks?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned patients who have a history of:

  • problems urinating due to an enlarged prostate
  • liver problems
  • kidney problems
  • heart problems
  • lung problems
  • diabetes
  • weight problems (obesity)

Because Striant has the ability to cause a more serious damage to a person already affected with conditions stated above, it is best to contact your doctor or health professional if any symptoms are heightened.

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
