Testosterone Therapy Dangers

After suffering a heart attack, stroke or other cardiac event, many men are never the same. Open heart surgery, continued medication and life-long pain may interfere with your ability to live life to the fullest. Recovery time often takes men out of work. Lost wages and large medical bills can have a devastating impact on an individual's financial health. It is time you fought back.

If you or a loved one used a "low T" drug or therapy and suffered an adverse health effect, you may have a claim for compensation. At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, our lawyers represent men who suffered heart attack, stroke or another adverse health event after using testosterone replacement therapies through mass tort litigation.

Many mass tort cases are handled by large national law firms with little or no local ties. At Gibbs & Fuerst, LLP, we are locally based in Murrieta and San Diego. Our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience representing clients in the Southern California community. We are always available to meet face-to-face to review your case and answer your questions.

Testosterone Therapy Dangers: Heart Attack, Stroke, Death

The FDA approved testosterone replacement therapies (TRTs) to treat men who suffer from clinically diagnosed low levels of testosterone. However, because the benefits of these drugs - including increased endurance, energy, muscle mass and sex drive - are aggressively advertised, many men with normal testosterone levels are taking these drugs.

The result: thousands of men are taking unneeded medications that could put their lives at risk.

Since 2010, leading medical journals have published studies showcasing the health risks associated with TRT use. Common adverse events associated with testosterone therapies include:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Blood clots
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Death
