Stroke Caused by Low Testosterone Treatment AndroGel

April 2, 2014

In March there was a complaint filed against the testosterone gel AndroGel by a New York man, Gary White. He joins the growing number of critics and complaints against this treatment for low testosterone (Low T). Gary White used AndroGel and it resulted in him having a stroke after only 5 months of use. Mr. White is a 56 year old man who had no history of heart disease, was in good health, and was living an active lifestyle. Some complaints suggest that the drug makers were “disease mongering.” In other words, it was complained that they had been marketing medications toward symptoms that extend beyond the approved use of the treatment. For example, some marketing suggests that men should seek “Low T” treatment if they feel general symptoms such as fatigue or decreased libido, when in fact these symptoms may be attributed to other medical conditions, such as hypogonadism. It has been alleged that the marketing program attempted to create an idea that a large number of men are affected by low testosterone and that AndroGel is a safe treatment. (See “AndroGel Stroke Lawsuit Filed Over Testosterone Gel Side Effects”)
