Androgel May Cause Serious Health Risks

0 Comment

Our top rated dangerous drug lawyers are currently investigating cases for patients suffering from serious complications and injuries from Androgel.  When a patient suffers from serious health-related conditions as a result of a treatment drug that has proven to be dangerous and cause harm, it can give rise to a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical manufacturer.

Testosterone Supplements Health RisksAbbVie Inc. is the drug company that produces the Androgel testosterone supplement.In the filing of Androgel lawsuits, they can be held liable for the damage their supplement causes.

Testosterone supplements or low testosterone therapy is a very common treatment among men.  This is because between two and four million men in the US alone suffer from below-normal testosterone levels, and Androgel is used as a hormone replacement.  In fact, in recent years sales of testosterone supplements have increased more than five-fold to more than 5 million and $1.6 billion in the U.S. sales in 2011.  In 2011, 5.3 million prescriptions for testosterone were written in the U.S.

However, even though Androgel has proven to help increase testosterone levels in men, research has shown that there is a direct association between the supplement and dangerous health complications.  In fact, studies done by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reveal that men with heart problems who are taking low testosterone treatments are 30 percent more likely to suffer a stroke, heart attack or death compared to healthy men who do not take the supplements.

Some of the most common serious health compilations associated with the use of testosterone supplements include:

  • Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke
  • Ischemic Stroke
  • Stroke
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
  • Death

Any patient who suffers from any one of the following injuries while taking Androgel does have legal rights and may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the liable manufacturing company.
