Androgel Lawsuit Claims For Heart Attack, Stroke, & Blood Clots

1 Comment

Androgel claims are being investigated for men who have suffered serious complications after taking the low testosterone drug.  Recent medical studies have shown a number of potential risks or complications from the use of testosterone drugs, like Androgel, including the risk of heart attack, ischemic stroke, blood clots, and even death.  Several dangerous drug lawsuits have already been filed and it is expected that more lawsuits will be filed shortly.

The Androgel gel is applied by men and has a reservoir of testosterone, which sticks to the skin and delivers the drug through skin.  It is advertised as a safe and effective way to take the drug.   The manufacturers say that their gel protects other people from accidentally coming into contact with it during normal daily activities.  Androgel gel is made and distributed by the AbbVie Inc., an international pharmaceutical company with sales all over the world.  The company had total product sales of $1.52 billion dollars in 2012 and trades as ACT on the New York Stock Exchange.  

Androgel claims being filed by men and their families allege that the risks of the testosterone drug were not properly disclosed by the company to consumers.  Many men would not have taken the drug if the potential harm and risk of death were made known.  The benefits clearly outweighed the risks to a large portion of the public.

Our testosterone drug claim lawyers are actively representing patients suffering from complications of the Androgel gel.  These lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering damages, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.  In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a Wrongful Death Lawsuit.

  1. Comment *my daddy used androgel for a few years after taking the drug he suffered from blood clots in his legs and possibly a stroke .He went into the hospital because we thought he had a mild stroke,affter several test we found out he had terminal brain cancer. He completed the radiation and was on a chemo regimine. I found several soars on his leg that all the nurses and doctors just assumed it was from poor circulation.A week later he was back in the hospital where they had to remove part of the vein just below the knee. The wound was 6inches long 3 inches wide and 2 inches deep. All of this was caused by a blood clot that got dismissed by doctors and nurses. HE WAS UNABLE TO TAKE HIS CHEMO WHICH KEPT THE TUMOR AT BAY while he had an opened wound. we realize that his illness was terminal,but we feel that he may have suffered a mild stroke and he had many blood clots in his legs.We also feel that if he had been able to take the chemo we would have had him longer than six months. I do blame the doctors and nurses for not listening when the clots were discovered by myself. because of this he couldn’t take the chemo that kept the tumor from growing.In my opinion he would have lived longer if he hadn’t taken the the drug Androgel and could have continued his treatment to treat his tumor
