Low-T Therapy and Serious Injury
The FDA has issued a warning for men using low testosterone and testosterone therapy products, stating that these products significantly increase your risk for heart disease. In fact, studies have found that within the first 90 days of treatment, men over the age of 65 experience a doubling of their heart attack risk. The risk triples for men under the age of 65 with a history of heart disease. Other risks such as blood clots and stroke are also increased with the use of these products.
Low-T medications involved in the FDA’s new warning include:
If you are on one of these dangerous medications, you should stop use and speak with your doctor right away.
Understanding Your Rights
When you suffer injury from a medication, you may be entitled to seek compensation for all of your damages. In this particular case, the risk of heart disease was not listed on the warning label, but even if it were, the countless men who have had the product prescribed without proper testing or for off-label uses such as low-libido would still have cause to file suit.
No matter why you have been prescribed a medication, if it causes harm you need to speak to an experienced attorney to better understand your rights.
