Can Fortesta cause a heart attack or stroke?

0 Comment

Two recent medical studies have shown that testosterone replacement therapy, such as Fortesta, may increase a person’s risk for a heart attack and stroke. These conditions also put a man at an increased risk of death. Additional studies are currently being performed and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently announced that it would begin investigating prescription testosterone treatment for an increased risk in heart attack and stroke.

Heart Attack or Stroke From FortestaFortesta is a testosterone supplement in the form of a topical gel and metered medication.  The topical gel has a reservoir of testosterone, which sticks to the skin and delivers the drug through the skin.  It has been promoted as a safe and effective way to help men who suffer from below normal testosterone levels. However, the recent scientific studies show multiple possible health risks, including:

• Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
• Cardiac Arrest
• Hemorrhagic Stroke
• Ischemic Stroke
• Stroke
• Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
• Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
• Death
