Testosterone therapy drugs have been FDA-approved for the treatment of hypogonadism, a medical condition occurring in men where the male sex organs produce little or no testosterone hormone. Testosterone therapy is designed to work by replacing the absent naturally-occurring testosterone that is produced by the body.
Natural testosterone production in the body plays a significant role in male characteristics, mood, and sex drive. Men experiencing low levels of testosterone can have a number of unfavorable symptoms, including fatigue, low libido, and depression. As men age, they may experience dips in testosterone levels, and it is part of the natural-aging process to experience such an event. It is not a reason Testosterone therapy drugs were approved by the FDA, which is specifically for the medical condition hypogonadism.
Over the last several years, the testosterone product market has grown significantly, largely in part to aggressive marketing campaigns by testosterone manufacturers that have generalized symptoms for low testosterone, which has been coined “Low T.”
Recent studies have suggested that many men may face a substantially increased risk of heart attack, stroke or wrongful death from testosterone treatments.
Side effects of testosterone therapy drugs may include:
- Worsening symptoms of an enlarged prostate
- Increased risk of prostate cancer
- Lower sperm count
- Swelling of the ankles, feet, or body
- Enlarged and painful breasts
- Difficulty breathing during sleep
- Increased risk of blood clots occurring in the legs

Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
