Lawsuits Allege Testosterone Therapy Causes Cardiovascular Injury

Pharmaceutical liability lawsuits are intended to help and assist individuals who have suffered a pharmaceutical injury. A multitude of lawsuits has been filed concerning the use of replacement testosterone. Hundreds of men are bringing lawsuits following heart attacks and strokes they assert were suffered because of the use of testosterone replacement drugs. The use of testosterone replacement drugs in the United States is high with over two million men holding prescriptions for some type of testosterone replacement drug.

According to representatives for the men who have suffered cardiovascular injury as a result of replacement testosterone therapy, pharmaceutical ads that have been used to boost sales neglect to mention cardiovascular risks to users of the drugs. Some doctors who prescribe the drugs agree. Some experts expect that lawsuits to enter into the millions or billions in damages. Many prescription drugs in general have either personal injury or wrongful death claims against them.

Makers of the testosterone replacement drugs and alleged victims argue over whether or not testosterone replacement therapy causes cardiovascular injuries and, while the victims come from throughout the U.S., many of the cases have been funneled to one federal courtroom in the Midwest. Drugmakers maintain that cardiovascular issues are not among the side effects of testosterone replacement drugs. Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration has called for some re-labeling of the drugs and more investigation of the impacts on the heart.

Injuries and harm from pharmaceuticals can be significant and damages may mount for victims. Because of this, the legal process provides options to protect victims when they have suffered genuine harm and damages as a result of a defective or harmful drug.
