If you have had an Androgel heart attack, stroke, or pulmonary embolism, you may be entitled to a settlement consisting of monetary compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages.
Attorneys across the country are investigating potential Androgel settlements and lawsuits on behalf of men who used AndroGel or other testosterone gels, pellets, patches, or injections such as Testim, Axiron, Delatestryl, Fortesta, Testopel, Androderm, Bio-T-Gel, Dep-Testosterone, or Striant and suffered from heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, or other serious medical conditions.
In fact, on January 31, 2014, the FDA announced it would be investigating the risk of heart attack, stroke and death in men using prescription testosterone products. The FDA made the announcement after reviewing a study conducted at the National Cancer Institute, as well as a study published in the JAMA. The FDA recommended that while patients should not stop using these products without first talking to their doctors, healthcare professionals should consider whether the benefits of testosterone treatment outweigh the risks.
Androgel settlements and lawsuits are based on the legal notion that the manufacturers of AndroGel and other testosterone therapies had a duty to warn patients about the risk of heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism, but failed to provide any indication of these potential side effects on their products’ labeling or advertising materials.
