FDA now requires blood clot warnings on testosterone drugs

Posted on Thursday, June 26th, 2014 at 4:41 pm by Williams Hart   

Manufacturers of testosterone drugs are now being required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to place warning labels regarding an increased risk of blood clots.

Testosterone supplements were previously found to put individuals with polycythemia at increased risk of blood clots, but more recently, individuals taking this drug without polycythemia were found to also be at an increased risk of blood clots.

An ongoing investigation on further side effects of testosterone supplements is still being conducted by the FDA.

Testosterone supplements are used to improve the quality of life of certain individuals, so when devastating side effects like blood clots arise, it can have the exact opposite effect on one’s quality of life. If you or someone you know has been an unfortunate victim of devastating low T drug side effects, you may be able to receive compensation for your physical and financial suffering. At Williams Hart, our lawyers have a great deal of experience fighting for victims of Low T side effects.

Testosterone supplement maker in Indianapolis sued

Posted on Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 at 12:14 pm by Williams Hart   

A federal court in Chicago recently stated that the Indianapolis-based AndroGel drug maker Eli Lilly and Co. will face a consolidated lawsuit for not informing the public of the potential dangers of ingesting testosterone supplements, the Indianapolis Business Journal reported on June 9.

Judges decided on June 6 to include testosterone supplement maker Eli Lilly and Co. in the class action suit against manufacturers of testosterone-replacement drugs. Aside from Lily, Chicago-based Abbot Laboratories offshoot AbbVie Inc. will be included in the lawsuit. A panel of judges decided to consolidate the cases after the FDA stated that they will conduct another study on the safety of testosterone supplements used by older men. Several studies linked the supplements to heightened risk of stroke and heart attack.

If you think you have developed heart-related problems from using testosterone supplements, the lawyers of Williams Hart may represent you. Our lawyers believe that negligent drug makers should shoulder the expenses of medical treatment you need to recover. Learn more about your options today by calling (800) 220-9341.


USFDA approved Canadian testosterone supplement maker

Posted on Wednesday, June 11th, 2014 at 9:16 am by Williams Hart   

A Canadian-based pharmaceutical was recently granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Agency to market a gel testosterone supplement in the U.S., an article by Fierce Drug Delivery stated on June 3.

According to reports, Trimel Pharmaceuticals was given permission on May 28 to market Natesto, a testosterone supplement for older men administered through nasal delivery. The firm’s CEO Tom Rossi stated that aside from its practicality, nasal administration of testosterone supplement prevents the risk of possible contact of the supplement with children and women. Natesto’s packaging includes a warning of possible edema for men, with or without history of heart problems.

Sadly, several studies have already confirmed that use of testosterone supplements in older men may result in heart attack risk and stroke. If you think you are suffering heart problems from using the potentially dangerous supplements, the lawyers of Williams Hart may represent you.

Testosterone Injury Claims Move to Multidistrict Litigation

Posted on Monday, June 9th, 2014 at 11:56 am by Williams Hart   

In January, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it had begun an investigation of a possible link between the use of testosterone replacement therapies and a range of serious health concerns, including heart attack and stroke. Soon afterwards, dozens of lawsuits were filed against the manufacturers of popular low testosterone treatments, including Androgel, Androderm, and others.

In order to streamline the litigation process, these suits have now been brought together as a multidistrict litigation in the Northern District of Illinois, which is where the majority of the initial claims originated. This will allow for a quicker process in helping those who may have been badly injured or who may have lost a loved one as a result of testosterone supplement use. You can read more about the multidistrict litigation by clicking here and here.

Reduced salt consumption leads to drop in fatal heart problems

Posted on Monday, April 28th, 2014 at 2:51 pm by Williams Hart   

According to a report published in The Guardian, a recent study found that an overall decrease in the salt intake of people in England has resulted in a drop in fatal heart problems and stroke.

In the study, recently published in the BMJ Open medical journal, an average 15% decrease in daily salt intake in England from 2003 to 2011 is believed to have resulted in the 42 percent decrease of deadly strokes and at least 40 percent decrease in fatal coronary heart disease seen in the country. The notable reduction in salt intake from 2003 to 2011 was made possible after the Food Standards Agency pushed food companies to lessen the amount of salt that they put into their products.

Sadly, older men who use testosterone supplements to treat Low-T are at a higher risk of having fatal heart problems or strokes. If you or someone you love has suffered adverse testosterone supplement side effects, the legal team at Williams Hart is ready to put their considerable resources and experience to work for you.
