Misleading Information Regarding Testosterone Issues

The federal testosterone lawsuits were all recently consolidated in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois , In Re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2545, and the court appointed partner Kathleen Chavez to As Counsel on the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee, which oversees and directs the litigation of injured patients’ claims against the defendants.

If you or a loved one has taken AndroGel or another testosterone replacement therapy drug and suffered from severe cardiovascular injuries, including heart attacks and strokes, you may have a legal claim and may be entitled to money damages.

Prescription testosterone drugs were manufactured to treat men with low testosterone who have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition called hypogonadism. However, manufacturers of testosterone replacement therapy drugs misled the public through a marketing campaign and encouraged much broader use of the testosterone drugs than medically appropriate. The manufacturers misled patients and doctors, asserting that testosterone replacement therapy drugs were safe to use for millions of men across the country. As a result, annual prescriptions of testosterone replacement therapy drugs increased five-fold from 2000 to 2011. Testosterone replacement therapy drugs were prescribed to approximately 5.3 million men in the year 2011 and have been manufactured under various names including:

  • AndroGel
  • Axiron
  • Androderm
  • Fortesta
  • Testim

Testosterone use has been directly linked to heart attacks, strokes and death; the increased use of testosterone leads some men to suffer these very serious side effects.

Legal Claims And Testosterone Replacement Therapy Lawsuits

Testosterone replacement therapy lawsuits have been filed alleging that the manufacturers failed to adequately warn consumers of the dangers and side effects of the drugs and placed a dangerous drug on the market.
