Androderm Lawsuit Filed For Pulmonary Embolism

0 Comment

Androderm Lawsuit Filed For Pulmonary EmbolismA testosterone lawsuit has recently been filed in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles against the manufacturer of the prescription testosterone drug Androderm.  The case was filed on behalf of Roy H. Symer and his wife Sabrina.

The patient suffered from a pulmonary embolism (PE) which required prolonged hospitalization shortly after being prescribed the testosterone replacement treatment Androderm. 

The lawsuit is seeking damages for the patients’ pain and suffering and is alleging the use of Androderm was cause for his injuries.

Androderm is made by Actavis Inc., formerly known as Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc.  It is an international pharmaceutical company with sales all over the world.

Although Androderm has proven effective in the treatment of men suffering from below-normal testosterone levels, the Low T replacement therapy has been associated with several possible cardiac risks, including pulmonary embolism (PE), heart attacks, strokes, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that it would begin investigating prescription testosterone therapy drugs for an increased risk in heart attack and stroke.  The investigation was prompted after two studies revealed that men using testosterone treatment demonstrated a 30% increased risk for cardiac risks.  

Patients who suffer serious injury or harm while using Androderm do have legal rights and may have a possible claim against the testosterone drug manufacturer, Actavis Inc.  There are strict statutes of limitations for filing a claim so it is important that you do not wait to consult with an experienced attorney.
