Testosterone Therapy: Increased Risk of Heart Attack & Stroke
Recent medical studies have shown that older men, as well as younger men with pre-existing diagnosed heart disease, suffer a substantial increase in the risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack) after starting prescription testosterone therapy.
Just because your testosterone products and dosage were approved by your doctor does not mean that you have no risk of heart attack. Testosterone therapy has been proven to increase the risk of heart attack, regardless of the fact that it is approved by the FDA.
Below is a list of testosterone therapy products and their manufacturers:
- Androgel – AbbVie Pharmaceuticals
- Androderm – Actavis Inc.
- Axiron – Eli Lilly & Company
- Bio-T-Gel – BioSante Pharmaceuticals/Teva Pharmaceutical Industries
- Delatestryl – Sandoz Canada Inc.
- Depo-Testosterone – Pfizer Inc.
- Fortesta – Endo Pharmaceuticals
- Striant – Actient Pharmaceuticals
- Testim – Auxilium Pharmaceuticals
- Testopel – Auxilium Pharmaceuticals
