Testosterone Therapy Lawsuit
Pharmaceutical companies have aggressively marketed testosterone supplements to men who experience low sex-drive, fatigue and changes in mood. Often times, the men who are prescribed this medication are not suffering from a deficiency in testosterone.
From 2000 to 2011, the number of men taking testosterone supplements increased by 500 percent. According to the FDA, testosterone supplements were specifically approved to treat low testosterone levels associated with a medical condition. However, recent studies have found that men are being prescribed the treatment for natural reductions in testosterone levels that all men experience as part of the aging process. This has led many patients to file claims in the testosterone therapy lawsuit.
Risks Associated with Low Testosterone Therapy
In many cases, testosterone therapy is prescribed for men who do not have below-normal levels of testosterone. Because manufacturers did not warn of the side effects associated with testosterone therapy, unsuspecting consumers are being unnecessarily exposed to medication that may have life altering consequences.
Low testosterone therapy has been linked to an increased risk of severe conditions, including:
- Heart attacks
- Blood clots

Low testosterone therapy has increased 500 percent in recent years due to aggressive marketing on the behalf of pharmaceutical companies. Oftentimes, men who are not appropriate candidates for the drug are prescribed testosterone to treat fatigue, “grumpiness”, and low sex-drive – all of which may not be related to a deficiency in the hormone.
