Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is prescribed to millions of men every year to treat symptoms of low testosterone, or “Low T.” Although ads may make it seem like testosterone is ideal for anyone with flagging libido, sagging muscles, or other unpleasant signs of aging, it is actually only intended for men with hypogonadism. In addition, recent studies have linked testosterone and life-threatening side effects like heart attack, stroke, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and even death.

UPDATE: Canadian Lawyers file Testosterone Class Action Lawsuits
July 25, 2014 — Attorneys in Canada have filed two class action lawsuits against the manufacturers of AndroGel (testosterone gel) and Delatestryl (testosterone injection). These class actions are seeking recovery on behalf of Canadians who purchased testosterone products. Click here to read more.
- AndroGel class action filed on June 26.
- Delatestryl class action filed on July 22 in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is becoming increasingly popular for middle-aged men. If you watch TV, you have probably seen ads suggesting that normal side effects of aging (sagging muscles, low libido, depressed mood, low energy, etc.) could be caused by low testosterone, or “Low T.”
Unfortunately, since 2009, several studies have shown that TRT does not substantially benefit men without hypogonadism, and it may have life-threatening side effects. The FDA launched an investigation in January 2014, just days after PLoS One published a study linking testosterone to a doubled risk of heart attack for men over 65 years old.
Popular testosterone therapy products include:
- Androgel (AbbVie Inc.) – Topical gel applied to skin
- Androderm (Actavis) – Patch
- Axiron (Lilly USA, LLC) – Underarm liquid/cream
- Bio-T-Gel (Teva Pharmaceuticals) – Topical gel applied to skin
- Delatestryl (Endo Pharmaceuticals) – Injection
- Depo-Testosterone (Unigen Life Sciences) – Injection
- Fortesta (Endo Pharmaceuticlas) – Topical gel applied to skin
- Striant (Auxilium Pharmaceuticals) – Buccal tablet absorbed through gums
- Testim (Auxilum Pharmaceuticals) – Topical gel applied to skin
- Testopel (Auxilium Pharmaceuticals) – Subcutaneous pellet
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a testosterone class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of men who used testosterone patches, gels, injections, or other products.
We are currently evaluating legal claims involving the following side effects:
- Blood clots
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Abnormal heart rhythm
- Organ damage
- And other serious side effects
About Class Actions
Class actions make sense when a large group of people needs to file essentially the same lawsuit against the same defendant. They are particularly useful when each person is seeking damages that are less than the cost of filing an individual lawsuit. Lawyers choose a plaintiff to be the “class representative” and use that case to fight for compensation on behalf of the entire group.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Testosterone Class Action
Our lawyers are concerned that a testosterone class action could be detrimental for people who were severely injured. Members could be forced to accept high attorneys’ fees and a low ball settlement.
Our trial lawyers specialize in holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for selling defective drugs and failing to warn about side effects.
We believe every men who had a blood clot, heart attack, or stroke after using testosterone deserves the opportunity to take his case before a judge and jury.
