Blood Clots and Heart Attacks Alleged in Testosterone Lawsuits
Hundreds of lawsuits filed by men using testosterone therapy are once again shining a spotlight on the dangers associated with prescribing drugs for “off label” purposes, or those not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to CBS News, the lawsuits coincide with a recent warning issued by the FDA linking testosterone therapy to a range of health issues, among them blood clots, strokes and cardiovascular issues, such as heart attacks.
Used by men for numerous purposes including increased libido, youthfulness and energy, testosterone therapy, says a lawyer for hundreds of plaintiffs, is often pushed on people seeking a “fountain of youth” type of solution for their problems. The lawyer noted a number of studies indicating a link between these treatments and strokes and heart attacks. The results of a large-scale, nationwide testosterone therapy study currently underway are expected to be released soon, with researchers hoping it will offer clarity as to the safety and effectiveness of this type of therapy, the website reported.
How an Arkansas Testosterone Lawyer Can Help
Drug manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are accompanied by full and accurate instructions and warnings to guide prescribing doctors and other health care providers in making treatment decisions. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
Patients who are injured by testosterone replacement therapy drugs may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- The permanency of the injury
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
If a patient dies from complications after taking a testosterone drug, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Patients who have suffered severe side effects after taking testosterone drugs, as well as the families of those who have died as a result of complications with the drug, are encouraged to seek the advice of an Arkansas testosterone lawyer to learn more about their rights and remedies.
