UPDATE: FDA Adds More Warnings to Testosterone Products

The Food and Drug Administration announced yesterday that it is requiring testosterone products to list additional warnings to its label, a general warning informing users of the increased risk of blood clots in veins while taking Low-T products. ( FDA, 6/19/2014)

Currently, all testosterone products carry a blood clot warning, but in connection with the medical condition polycythemia. The FDA explained that the warning labels across all testosterone products needs to be more consistent, hence the addition of the general blood clot warning.

The testosterone market continues to grow in spite of these warnings, and experts believe it will reach $5 billion in annual revenue by 2017.

The FDA has only approved testosterone products to treat men who have low testosterone levels due to a known medical condition or because of chemotherapy treatment. Low-T products are not approved for men who lack an associated medical condition. ( FDA, 6/20/2014)

In the European Union, medical researchers are investigating whether testosterone products pose a serious risk of heart attack and stroke. The U.S. has halted a similar investigation, saying that it first needs to reassess the safety issue, a move that was highly criticized.
