Testosterone replacement therapy drugs like AndroGel have been accused of causing serious health problems.
Men who used AndroGel testosterone gel and suffered adverse health consequences are filing lawsuits across the country. The lawsuits accuse AbbVie Inc. and Abbot Laboratories, the makers and distributors of AndroGel, of deceptively advertising the low-T drug as safe and negligently causing harm to the patients who took the product. The Cochran Firm, D.C. has not filed these lawsuits, but its experienced attorneys are actively investigating testosterone replacement therapy legal claims.
The lawsuits accuse AbbVie and Abbot Laboratories of engaging in an aggressive advertising campaign that in addition to TV, radio, magazine, and online marketing, included unbranded “disease awareness” campaigns designed to make men think they suffer from “low-T.” The disease awareness campaign associated low testosterone with general symptoms that can be associated with natural aging such as fatigue, decreased libido, decreased muscle mass, mood changes, deterioration in the ability to play sports, and lessened work performance. The AndroGel lawsuits allege that the low-T drug is unsafe for consumers and that AbbVie and Abbot should have known of AndroGel’s risks.
