Pharmaceutical Drug Warnings

Drug Recalls - Lawsuit Information

There is little doubt that innovations in medical research can benefit society. But the desire to find new ways to treat illness must be balanced with public safety. Unfortunately, the rush to get a product on the market as soon as possible sometimes comes at the expense of safety.

A defective drug lawsuit not only can claim financial compensation for your family’s medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering, but also can contribute to getting defective drugs recalled or removed from the American market. Thus, potential future victims may be spared with help from your defective drug lawsuit.

Testosterone (Low T) Therapy

In 2010, medical researchers halted a large study of testosterone in senior men because patients taking the hormone were five times more likely to suffer a serious heart event, including heart attacks and stroke, than those taking placebos.

A 2013 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association involved men with low testosterone levels who underwent coronary angiography in the VA system between 2005 and 2011. Testosterone therapy was associated with an increased risk of adverse outcomes compared with those who did not get testosterone therapy.

A 2014 NIH-funded study found that the risk of heart attacks after using testosterone drugs was twice as high in men 65 and older and almost three times as high in men younger than 65 with a history of heart disease.
