Testosterone Gel Lawsuit

Testosterone replacement therapy, which includes testosterone gels, is growing in popularity among older males as a result of aggressive pharmaceutical advertisements that boast testosterone gels as being the solution to aging and low testosterone, or Low T. Though these advertisements carefully deliver a life-changing offer, they fail to tell the whole story about testosterone gel products, among them, Androgel, a testosterone gel manufactured by AbbVie, and Axiron, a testosterone gel manufactured by Eli Lilly & Co.

Even though testosterone replacement drugs, like testosterone gels, were intended for those who were unable to produce a healthy level of testosterone on their own, testosterone gels have now been prescribed as a way to treat signs of aging in male patients. The decrease in testosterone levels as male patients age has been termed low testosterone, or low T.

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013 recorded the health of older male patients using testosterone gels. The researchers found that testosterone gels increased the risk of cardiovascular problems, especially in those patients who already had a history of poor heart health.

This study, and many like it, have prompted the FDA to look more closely at testosterone gel heart problems.
