Potential Risks Associated with Testosterone Therapy
As men get older, testosterone levels may begin to decline. Many men seek therapy to help treat abnormally low levels of testosterone. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved many testosterone therapy treatments for men, but in recent years, there have been more reports of side effects that have made their way to the forefront of the news.
While there are various alleged benefits to testosterone therapy, there are also risks associated with supplementation. Some associated effects include the potential increased risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack.
Your physician may warn you of known potential risks, but if the pharmaceutical company responsible for producing the testosterone therapy was negligent and did not release a safe drug, they may be held accountable for any serious injuries that arise due to the drug.
