Testosterone Therapy Linked to Heart Attacks, Strokes & Blood Clots

What is testosterone? Why have so many drug companies pushed TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy)? These are questions that must be on the minds of many men today.

It is difficult to listen to the radio or turn on your TV without hearing ads for free samples of drugs to raise your testosterone. Some of these ads suggest that wives should motivate their husbands to talk to a doctor about getting a prescription for TRT.

Other methods for selling these drugs are to turn ordinary life experiences into need for a drug, a drug that is happily supplied by Big Pharma. Or the “Low T Quiz” that will make any man think he needs these drugs.

These drugs are not without risk. Recent studies have shown there is a link between these drugs and the risk for cardiovascular injury. In fact, in January of this year the FDA issued a Safety Announcement linking these drugs to heart attacks, strokes and blood clots.

The following includes a list of testosterone replacement therapy drugs:

  • AndroGel
  • Androderm
  • Low T
  • Testosterone Therapy
  • Fortesta Gel
  • Testopel
  • Depo-Testosterone
  • Axiron
