Testosterone treatment therapies are intended to help men suffering from low testosterone levels increase the amount of testosterone in their bodies. These therapies are available in several forms, including patches, pellets, pills, injections, and creams. While more than five million prescriptions for testosterone replacement therapies were written in 2011 alone, some men have allegedly suffered from strokes, heart attack, and death as a result of their prescriptions.

What is Testosterone Treatment?
Ten commonly prescribed products to increase testosterone levels are Bio-T-Gel, Depo-Testosterone, Fortesta, Axiron, Testopel, Testim, Androderm, Striant, Delatestryl, and AndroGel. According to the products’ warning labels, users may experience common side effects such as vomiting, jaundice, nausea, and headaches. However, men throughout the U.S. are filing lawsuits against several manufacturers of testosterone therapy after having allegedly suffered from mood and mental changes, water retention, decreased sperm production, and adema.
Research has suggested that sleep apnea, high blood counts, congestive heart failure, prostate cancer, and benign prostatic hypertrophy may worsen in men who use testosterone treatments. Additionally, men may be at an increased risk of experiencing adverse side effects while using a testosterone replacement therapy if they have high cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease, blocked arteries, obesity, or diabetes.
Testosterone Therapy Manufacturers Named as Defendants
Men may be eligible to file a Colorado testosterone therapy lawsuit if they experienced complications while taking a testosterone treatment therapy. According to pending lawsuits, manufacturers are accused of failing to warn of the potentially fatal side effects and life-threatening complications that could occur in patients who use their products.
Additionally, lawsuits claim that manufacturers had the duty to warn the public and medical communities of these risks and only did so after thousands of men throughout the country had already used or were currently using the products. Surviving family members of individuals who have died as a result of complications may consider pursuing a wrongful death claim to recover damages for their losses.
