Low-Testosterone "Low T" Lawsuit
On January 1, 2014, the FDA issued an alert and announced that they were investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products. The FDA was reacting to recent studies that suggested certain groups of men face a considerable risk of heart attacks if they take testosterone. On June 19, 2014, the FDA began requiring manufacturers of testosterone products to include a general warning in the drug labeling about the risk of blood clots in the veins, in response to postmarket reports of venous blood clots.
Wexler Wallace LLP represents men who have suffered serious side effects arising from the use of testosterone products. The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) ordered all federal lawsuits involving testosterone therapy products to be consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, where the first cases were filed. Cases are also consolidated in state court in Cook County, Illinois.
There are several Defendants, including Abbvie and Abbot Laboratories, the makers of AndroGel—by far the most popular “Low T” product on the market. Other Defendants include Eli Lilly (Axiron) and Watson Laboratories (Androderm). Testosterone products are approved to treat men who lack testosterone or have low testosterone levels, in conjunction with an associated medical condition.
Wexler Wallace continues to file complaints on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious side effects while taking or after taking testosterone or “Low T” products.
