Why are Low Testosterone Drugs Prescribed?

As men age, the body naturally produces less testosterone. The result is a loss in muscle, sex drive, and osteoporosis (a loss of bone density). While women naturally experience osteoporosis after menopause, osteoporosis in men is generally considered a symptom of low testosterone. To counter these effects, doctors prescribe low T drugs in an effort to stop or even reverse these natural occurring biologic processes. Testosterone drugs come in a variety of forms, including a patch, a topical gel, or can be injected.

Is Testosterone Gel Defective?

Recently, a clinical trial of “Low T” drugs, linked them to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack, which can result in paralysis, brain damage, or even death. The study followed nearly 9000 men, each of which took these drugs over a three year period. It concluded those who took these drugs were more likely to experience a stroke or heart attack as compared to those who did not take the drugs. This was the second clinical study to report this conclusion. Under most state laws, a drug could be considered defective under the law if the manufacturer fails to disclose known side effects. Patients have a right to understand all health risks of any drug so they, along with their doctor, can determine if the benefits outweigh the risks.

What are the Risks of Testosterone Therapy?

Men who already had adverse health problems such as plaque buildup, diabetes, high cholesterol, arterial blockage (plaque), or were obese, have the greatest increased risk of stroke and heart attack. If doctors were provided with this information, those with increased risk of adverse health events may not have been prescribed low T therapy. In response to the study, at least one manufacturer, AbbVie, Inc. (they make AndroGel), acknowledge people with heart, kidney or lung disease are especially at risk.

Should I Stop Taking Testosterone Therapy Drugs?

You should discuss this with your medical provider. Only he or she can properly advise you to stop taking a prescribed medication. We recommend you specifically as your doctor about this study and whether in light of it you are a good candidate for Low T therapy.
