AndroGel Testosterone Lawsuit

Contact For A FREE Consultation!

In 2011, more than 5 million men were prescribed treatment (such as AndroGel) for what is known as “low T,” or low testosterone. Those men are not alone: More than 430 million low T or AndroGel therapy prescriptions have been written since 2008. In fact, analysts believe that sales for testosterone drugs might reach $5 billion by 2017. There are a significant number of these men using the low T drug therapy and/or AndroGel in Northeast Pennsylvania.

What men using these low T supplements don’t know, however, can severely harm them – and even cause death. A study published in the November 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that men who underwent testosterone therapy or specifically used AndroGel also showed a “increased risk of adverse outcomes.” Other research has shown that low testosterone treatments  increase the danger of heart attacks in older men and in middle-aged men with a history of heart disease in their families.

In January 2014, the FDA announced that it will research the many side effects of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), while also issuing a medical safety alert for the low T gels, patches, foams, injections, and pills that doctors frequently prescribe to boost testosterone levels.

Scranton personal injury law firm Munley Law is representing testosterone and AndroGel drug therapy users who have been injured by these low T products. If you or someone you care about has suffered a heart attack, stroke, embolisms, or even death, it may be as a result of  side effects of using AndroGel or low testosterone products, we want to help. We are looking into potential legal claims for men who were prescribed TRT or AndroGel to boost their testosterone levels.

What Is AndroGel?

AndroGel, manufactured by by Abbvie, is an androgen used for replacement therapy in men with testosterone deficiency. The product is a gel that is used topically. However, it has been found that men who use AndroGel and similar products are at higher risk for the following issues:

  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary embolism (a blood clot lodged in your lungs)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in your legs)
  • Venous thromboembolism (a combination of blood clots)
  • Heart attack
  • Arrhthmia (irregular heartbeat)
  • Transient ischemic attacks, also known as “mini-strokes”
  • Brain damage

Other testosterone supplements include the following:

  • Androderm
  • Axiron
  • Bio-T-Gel
  • Delatestryl
  • Depo-Testosterone

Without Caroline Munley, I’m not sure where I would be. After cutting off the tip of my finger at my construction job, I was worried that my career would be at risk. But Ms. Munley reassured me that filing a workers comp claim doesn’t mean I would lose my job. She was with me every step of the way and helped me get back on my feet again. Now I’m back on the job and it’s all thanks to her help! Maggie, a Workers’ Compensation Client
