Testosterone-Related Heart Attack And Stroke Lawsuits
Turn on the radio or television, and you are sure to hear a commercial about low ”T” and the wonderful effects that testosterone therapy can have on our lives. When you are feeling tired and sluggish or are experiencing libido problems or belly fat, it sounds great. But, they forgot to tell the public about the increased risks of strokes and heart attacks with testosterone.
At Kaire & Heffernan, PLLC, we have long specialized in medical malpractice claims involving failure to diagnose and treat stroke and heart attack victims. Thus, we feel best equipped to take on the pharmaceutical companies as well as the doctors and clinics that prescribed these harmful drugs.
How Do You Know If AndroGel Caused A Stroke Or Heart Attack?
Let us worry about that. We will review your medical records and submit them to some of the best medical experts in the country for further review. If you or a loved one has suffered a stroke or a heart attack, THEN call us at Kaire & Heffernan. Likewise, call our offices if you have a question about whether you are truly suffering from low testosterone.
Problems From Testosterone Therapy
What we long suspected was confirmed by recent studies that documented an increased risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack) and ischemic stroke associated with the use of testosterone therapy products. The most popular of these products are AndroGel, Axiron and Androderm. The incredible part is that it took this long for studies to confirm these harmful side effects; these were opinions that most medical professionals held for many years.
Taking Testosterone Increases Chances Of Strokes And Heart Attacks
The risk of heart attacks and strokes for users of testosterone products is almost double that of the general population. Given the way that the drug has been marketed, there are sure to be a number of strokes and heart attacks caused by testosterone therapy.
In addition, medical malpractice lawsuits against medical providers are being investigated – not because the doctors knew about the dangers of these products but, rather, because a large number of the people that were given prescriptions for testosterone therapy were not suffering from low testosterone.
