Testosterone Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy is used to treat hypogonadism in males, where the pituitary glands or testicles do not make enough testosterone and males have unwanted conditions such as sexual dysfunction, lower bone and muscle mass, reduced energy and low mood. Testosterone replacement therapy is also known as Low-T therapy, or simply testosterone therapy. It involves giving men synthetic hormones, commonly in the form of injection, cream, or gel. Some men use testosterone patches and oral medications, as well as subcutaneous implants.

Testosterone Therapy Heart Attack, Stroke, and Blood Clot Complications

While some men experience only a positive response to the hormone replacement, others are not so lucky. Common testosterone side effects include:

  • Breast enlargement
  • Fluid retention
  • Mood swings or increased aggression
  • Reduction in testicle size
  • Skin changes, such as acne or oily skin
  • Sleep apnea worsening
  • Urinary frequency, caused by stimulation of the prostate tissue

More rare, but serious side effects include:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot that forms in a deep vein of the body, most commonly in the legs. Clots can break loose and cause pulmonary embolism.)
  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Pulmonary embolism (a sudden blockage of the artery in the lung, usually caused by a blood clot. It can cause permanent lung damage and damage to other organs resulting from low oxygen.)
  • Stroke, mini stroke and blood clots

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism or another serious condition as a result of testosterone replacement therapy, you may have a legal claim and be eligible for compensation. Contact an attorney for confidential guidance about your eligibility for filing an individual lawsuit or joining an MDL.
