Testim Risks & Side Effects
Over the past several months, researchers have associated various testosterone
drugs to a
significant increase in the risk for blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. Two of the most important studies revealed the following:
A study published in
PLOS One found that heart attack risks in men over the age of 65 taking testosterone
doubled. It also found that heart attack risks in men who have a history
of heart disease nearly tripled.
- A 2013 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association
(JAMA) found that men taking testosterone faced a 30% increased risk of
stroke, heart attack, and death.
After these studies were published, the FDA issued a safety announcement
that it would be further investigation risks posed by various testosterone
products, including AndroGel, Axiron, and Testim – all of which
were FDA-approved. The safety announcement also urged that only men with
diagnosed medical conditions and related low testosterone should be taking
