Fighting for Victims of Testim Side Effects

Testim® Lawsuit

Testim Injury Lawyer

Testim is a popular prescription drug used to treat men who purportedly suffer from Low T – or low testosterone. Although Testim had been approved for consumer use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), several studies have linked Testim – which is a transdermal product applied to the body in the form of a gel – to increased heart risks in men.

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 testosterone.

The Rights of Injured Consumers

After testosterone therapy was linked to increased cardiovascular risks in men, injured consumers began asserting their rights by filing lawsuits against the manufacturers of these products. At Meyerkord & Meyerkord LLC, our Kansas City personal injury lawyers are currently reviewing claims from consumers who have suffered harm after taking Testim or other testosterone products. We are prepared to guide clients through the personal injury claim process and toward the compensation they rightfully deserve.

If you or someone you know has experienced blood clots, stroke, or heart attack after taking Testim, call (800) 391-4318 or fill out an online contact form today.
