The attorneys at Alexander Shunnarah are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of men who used AndroGel or other testosterone therapies and suffered from heart attacks, strokes or other serious medical conditions. AndroGel and other “low-T” treatments, which are available as testosterone gels, patches, pellets and injections, have recently been linked to an increased risk of cardiac problems in older and middle-aged men with a history of heart disease.
Reports: Testosterone Therapy to Become $5 Billion Industry by 2017
Sales of testosterone gels, patches, injections and pills have soared in recent years, leading to increasing scrutiny that the drugs are being overprescribed to patients. According to the New York Times, studies show that 1 in 4 men who use these products never underwent routine blood tests to check for hypogonadism, a disorder that causes severe testosterone deficiency and the only condition for which testosterone therapy is approved. AndroGel has also faced criticism for its online “Low T Symptoms Quiz,” which prompts users to answer questions about symptoms that are so broad (Do You Have a Lack of Energy?, Are You Sad or Grumpy?), nearly anyone could answer “yes” and seek advice from their doctors about possibly having low testosterone levels.
