Testosterone Lawsuits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a safety alert requiring manufacturers of approved testosterone therapy products to change their labeling. The new labels are to include language about a possible increased risk of heart attack and stroke with use of the product. The FDA also cautioned that testosterone therapy products should only be used by men with low testosterone levels caused by certain medical conditions. One study found that the risk of heart attack in young men with a history of heart disease almost tripled with the use of testosterone therapy.
