Testosterone Supplement Side EffectsFebruary 13, 2014
Low T Therapy Side Effects
Available as gels, creams, patches, pills, and injections, testosterone supplements can be prescribed to men for the treatment of low testosterone levels and related negative side effects. Hypogonadism is the medical term for the disorder that prevents some men from creating and sustaining adequate levels of the hormone testosterone.
Low “T” therapy is viewed by some men as a miraculous treatment with many anti-aging qualities including an increase in libido, improvements in energy/mood, and even increased muscle mass. Common brands names of these products include: Androderm, Androgel, Axiron, Fortesta, and Testim. However, the side effects associated with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) are severe enough to result in the filing of testosterone supplement lawsuits across the country.
Medical Research Regarding Testosterone Replacement Therapy
In November of 2013, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study about testosterone supplements with shocking indications. Using more than eight thousand men as a sample, the study found that the use of testosterone supplement products resulted in a 29% increase the likelihood of experiencing a heart attack, stroke, or death compared to men who did not take a testosterone supplement. Researchers in this study took precautions to control for differences in age, blood pressure, and pre-existing medical conditions. These serious adverse effects have resulted in the filing of lawsuits against the manufacturers of Low T supplements.

In addition to strokes, heart attacks, and death, there are several additional side effects that have been reported by men taking testosterone supplements. These adverse effects include:
