News 4 Jacksonville reports that the number of men taking prescription testosterone over the past decade has sky rocketed. It promises to do everything from boost your energy to increase your libido, even help get rid of that spare tire around your waist. But along with it comes warnings.
A recent study found that despite the benefits of testosterone, some men should use it with caution. The study, along with others, shows prescription testosterone raised the risk of heart attacks in men with a history of heart disease, so it's pretty serious stuff.
At least one advocacy group, Public Citizen, is calling for the Food and Drug Administration to mention this risk on its label or it's ads. Right now, it's not mentioned it all.
If you or a loved one have suffered a stroke, blood clot or heart attack while taking a testosterone medication, like AndroGel, please call our experienced AndroGel attorneys at (888) 606-5297 for a free consultation about your potential AndroGel lawsuit.
