Testosterone Lawsuits

Injured? Reach Out to a Portland Personal Injury Lawyer

For many men, aging presents many new difficulties. One of the most common solutions is to seek testosterone supplements. However, these difficulties are natural side effects of aging. Persistent commercials and advertisements often push men to believe that testosterone supplements are both necessary and beneficial.

Unfortunately, the marketers pushing for testosterone supplements aren't telling the whole story. The misguided use of these supplements can lead to serious health problems, including strokes, pulmonary embolism, and even death. If you or a loved one has experienced complications due to testosterone supplements, let a Portland personal injury lawyer from Angel Law, P.C. act as an advocate for your case!

Do Testosterone Supplements Carry Risks?

Testosterone supplements are not dangerous when used correctly. The problem, however, occurs when men who have no need for such supplements take them on a regular basis. Testosterone manufacturers often neglect to warn medical professionals of the potentially damaging side effects of such supplements. They are only FDA-approved for those men who are facing low testosterone levels and associated medical conditions.

Some dangerous effects that have occurred from testosterone therapy include:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Transient ischemic attacks
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Wrongful death

As an example, Aveed was recently approved by the FDA. Usage of this supplement has caused reactions that are similar to a pulmonary embolism; however, there has been no mention of these side effects on any product labels. That is why it is important that you consult with a legal advocate who can assess your injury claim.
