Low T Drug Injury Lawyers

A study published in 2007, in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, found nearly one in four men ages 30 to 79 have low testosterone. A growing number of American men have turned to testosterone therapy, or “Low T” drugs, to address this concern – often at the recommendation of a trusted doctor. Unfortunately, these medications have been associated with dangerous side effects and even death.

You may be entitled to seek compensation in a drug injury claim if you are a male under the age of 80 and have experienced life-altering or life-threatening side effects associated with low testosterone therapy drugs. Below is information to help you understand your options as you seek physical and financial recovery.

A List of Potentially Dangerous “Low T” Drugs

Testosterone replacement therapy is available under a variety of brand names, including:

  • Axiron;
  • Androderm;
  • AndroGel;
  • Bio-T-Gel;
  • Delatestryl;
  • Depo-Testosterone;
  • Fortesta;
  • Striant;
  • Testim; and
  • Testopel;

Dosing methods vary among drugs. A patient may take the drug in one of the following ways:

  • orally;
  • topically (as a gel, spray, ointment or patch);
  • as an injection; and
  • via an implanted device.

Dangerous side effects are possible regardless of the brand name or method of delivery.

“Low T” Drug Side Effects Warranting an Injury Claim

The use of testosterone replacement therapy drugs has been associated with a number of life-altering and potential deadly side effects. Side effects that warrant civil action include:

  • prostate cancer;
  • blood clots;
  • congestive heart failure;
  • pulmonary embolism;
  • deep vein thrombosis;
  • cardiac arrest;
  • stroke; and
  • heart attack.

Other side effects associated with “Low T” drugs may cause discomfort and a diminishment of the quality of life. These include:

  • difficulty with urination;
  • hair loss;
  • headache; and
  • more.

Seek prompt medical attention if you develop any side effects or symptoms associated with “Low T” drugs.

Potential Damages in a “Low T” Drug Claim

Compensation in a drug injury claim will address your financial and physical damages and may include:

  • medical bills (including for past injuries and future complications stemming from the use of the medication);
  • lost wages;
  • pain and suffering; and
  • more.

An effective claim will seek money to compensate you for all of the ways in which you have been impacted by the use of a defective drug.

Liability in a “Low T” Drug Injury Claim

There are two primary categories of liable parties in a drug injury claim stemming from “Low T” therapy drugs. These include:

  • Drug manufacturer – You may hold the prescription drug company responsible in a product liability claim. This is based on their having produced and marketed a product with dangerous and potentially deadly side effects. Florida’s statute of limitations provides you four years in which to file such a claim.
  • Prescribing doctors – You may hold your doctor liable for your injuries in a medical malpractice claim. This is true when a physician knowingly prescribes a medication with dangerous side effects or inappropriately prescribes a dangerous drug. Florida has a two-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims.

An attorney can examine the facts of your case to identify all liable parties. Our offices provide free, confidential case evaluations to those who have suffered injury because of a dangerous drug. Call Chalik & Chalik at (855) 529-0269.

The use of testosterone replacement therapy drugs has been associated with a number of life-altering and potential deadly side effects. You may be entitled to seek compensation in a drug injury claim if you are a male under the age of 80 and have experienced life-altering or life-threatening side effects associated with low testosterone therapy drugs.

Filing a Claim against a Drug Manufacturer

Your claim against a drug manufacturer may be consolidated into a mass tort claim, provided there are numerous other patients with injuries similar to your own. As with any legal action, there are advantages and disadvantages to such an action.

On the positive side, your attorney can combine resources (including evidence and expert testimony) with other attorneys working on similar claims. This is particularly valuable when facing off against a powerful drug company.

On the other hand, mass tort claims may take many months or even years to conclude. Your attorney can offer you a more detailed picture of what to expect in the course of your own claim.

Your Next Steps – Protecting Your Health and Right to Recovery

Talk to your doctor about any unusual side effects you have developed in the course of your testosterone therapy. Discontinue use of the medication if you have developed symptoms of “Low T” drug injury or are concerned about the risks associated with the drug.

Consider the use of other natural, healthy ways to boost testosterone, such as:
