Link between testosterone therapy drugs and heart problems

Just about any, if not all drugs that you take into or apply to your body have the potential to cause unwanted side effects. These side effects may range from mild to severe depending on the drug. When prescribing a drug, doctors in Philadelphia must weigh the benefits the drug may bring the patient against the possible side effects.

A group of men have recently filed a lawsuit against those who manufacture and market a testosterone therapy drug known as AndroGel. The men claim they were unaware of the potential heart problems the drug could cause because the companies downplayed the risks. The five men say they suffered strokes or heart attacks as a result of being on the potentially dangerous drug.
