Heart Attacks Linked to AndroGel

AndroGel is a testosterone gel used to treat adult males who are testosterone deficient. Testosterone is a hormone which is naturally made by the human body. In fact, this hormone is responsible for many of the sexual characteristics of males such as growth of male sex organs and the prostate, development and distribution of male hair such as facial hair, and the sex drive and sexual function. Many males experience what is known as hypogonadism, a condition of low Testosterone. AndroGel, a controlled substance only available by prescription, is prescribed to men across the world for the little to no testosterone they experience. The gel is applied to the skin and absorbed. While this gel may seem like a quick and easy option for the treatment of low testosterone, it has been seen to cause cardiac adverse effects such as heart attack, stroke, and even death.

Legal Commentary
Our firm represents victims of the dangerous and deadly testosterone treatment AndroGel. If you or a loved one have used AndroGel and have experienced cardiac adverse effects, we encourage you to consult with one of our AndroGel attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical or funeral expenses. Although no monetary value can compensate for the death of a loved one who used Androgel, a successful claim will hopefully compensate for pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Further questions can be directed to the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm by emailing the lead AndroGel lawyer, Majed Nachawati at mn@fnlawfirm.com, or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.
