Problems from Testosterone Therapy
What we long suspected was confirmed by recent studies that documented an increased risk of myocardial infarction (heart attacks) 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 is 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 Stroke, Heart Attack
The risk of heart attack and stroke for users of testosterone products is almost double that of the general population. Given the way the drug was 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 “T”.
