Testosterone Therapy and Cardiac Arrest

The FDA has recently warned that men taking testosterone medications are at an increased risk for cardiac events such as heart attack and stroke. Investigations into these potentially dangerous medications have found that men who have experienced cardiac events in the past see risks for additional occurrences tripled within 90 days on testosterone therapy. What’s more, men over the age of 65 who have no history of heart attack see risks double within the first three months on these medications.

If you have suffered a heart attack or other serious side-effect while taking a testosterone medication, the dangerous drug attorneys at the Hornbuckle Firm are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
