Drug makers are spending millions of dollars to promote these drugs to consumers. However, they are not properly disclosing several of the serious potential health risks, including a pulmonary embolism.  The major testosterone drugs on the market now are  Androderm, Androgel, Axirom, 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.
