Pulmonary Embolism Caused By Testosterone Lawsuits

0 Comment

Pulmonary embolisms are a serious and life threatening medical condition.  There are many potential causes of a pulmonary embolism (PE).  Recent published medical studies have found that the use of testosterone supplements can increase the risk of this potentially fatal condition.  Lawsuits are being filed against drug makers by men who have suffered a PE after using a testosterone drugs.

When a person takes a testosterone supplements, there is an increase in the number of red blood cells. This thickens the blood and leads to the formation of blood clots which can stem the flow of blood in the vein and cause blockages in important body organs.  When this blockage breaks into the lungs or blocks the flow of blood and oxygen to the lungs is called Pulmonary Embolism. As a result the supply of oxygen to the brain is also cut and this can cause permanent brain damage and even death.

Common symptoms of a pulmonary embolism include:

  • Pain in the leg & Chest        
  • Drop in the Blood Pressure
  • Legs become red, warm and even swelling may occur
  • Dizziness
  • Cough (patients may also cough blood)
  • Irregular heartbeat 

Drug makers are aggressively marketing testosterone drugs to consumers, but they are not properly disclosing many potential health risks, including a pulmonary embolism.  The major testosterone drugs on the market now are Androderm, Androgel, Axiron, Bio-T-Gel, Delatestryl, Depo-Testosterone, Fortesta, Sriant, Testim, and Testopel.   Our lawyers are investigating claims against these drug companies for men, and their families, who have been injured or harmed due to a testosterone supplement.
