AndroGel Lawsuits Heart Attack Stroke Blood ClotBetween two and four million men in the US alone suffer from below-normal testosterone levels, a condition called hypogonadism. Men who do suffer from such conditions often turn to testosterone replacement therapy, treatment that provides adequate levels of hormone replacement. One of the most popular and widely used testosterone replacement drug is AndroGel.

AndroGel is in the form of a gel and has a resevoir of testosterone. Applied by rubbing into the skin, the resevoir of testosterone sticks to the skin and delivers the drug through the skin.  It is advertised as a safe and effective way to take the drug.

However, even though AndroGel has proven to help increase testosterone levels in men, research has shown that there is a direct association between these drugs and dangerous health conditions. In fact, studies 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 medical conditions associated with the use of testosterone treatments include:

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