The Dangers of Replacement Testosterone Treatments
The Ridenour Law Firm is currently investigating claims among men who may have been injured while taking testosterone treatments or testosterone replacement supplements. It has been recently determined that testosterone replacement therapy products for men have been linked to an increased risk of death, heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clotting), pulmonary embolisms, and other serious injuries. Adverse cardiovascular events can occur as a result of men taking testosterone supplements from prescription topical treatments, such as Androderm, Androgel, Axiron, Bio-T-Gel, Delatestryl, Depo Testosterone, Fortesta, Striant, Testim, and Testopel. These products can be applied by topical gel, transdermal patch, buccal system (gum), and/or injection.
If you or someone you know has experienced serious injuries after being prescribed testosterone replacement supplements or products call attorneys J. Timothy Bobo and Michael M. Stahl today at (800) 810-3476 for more information about your rights.

You can also report your injury or adverse event to the FDA at any time.
