The lawsuits being filed across the country against the makers of testosterone drugs has painted a tragic picture of many otherwise healthy men who have suffered strokes or heart attacks after taking the medication.
In one case, a very healthy 47-year-old man in Seattle suffered a stroke, which he believes was brought on by the testosterone therapy via injections he had been taking. There were no other health indications for him. He didn’t even have high blood pressure – his blood pressure had always been normal, and he never had any heart-related problems. His family didn’t have any history of stroke or heart attack, either.
For the past five years before the stroke, he had been taking testosterone injections two times per month to treat hypogonadism.
