How Can Androderm Cause Blood Clots?
Androderm blood clots (thrombosis) occur when blood cells build up in a vein, blocking the flow of blood in that vein. Clots can result in severe health complications, and can be deadly in certain patients. Blood clots can occur in superficial veins that are close to the skin, or in deep veins, a condition called deep vein thrombosis. If blood clots break away from where they develop and migrate to other regions of the body, they may result in death or other severe health consequences including pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs).
Blood clots may result from:
- Decreased blood flow
- Vein trauma
- Prolonged periods of sitting or inactivity
- Side effects of Androderm or other testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) product

How do Testosterone Supplements Work?
As males get older, their production of natural testosterone decreases slowly. Testosterone supplementation, also known as ‘Low-T’ treatment, is prescribed to men who have low or non-existent natural testosterone production. Low testosterone levels can cause decreased sex drive, weakened bone density, and decreased muscle mass. Testosterone boosters like Androderm are prescribed for the treatment of these issues.
How Are Androderm Blood Clots Treated?
Depending on where the clot is located and the patient’s overall health condition, Androderm blood clots may be treated several different ways. If you are currently suffering from any of the above-listed symptoms, and feel you may have developed a blood clot, call your physician immediately.
Over the past several years, there have been revolutionary medical advances that have improved blood clot treatment. Current treatment methods include:
- Anticoagulant Drugs – Prescription medications that inhibit blood from clotting.
- Clot Busters – Drugs that dissolve blood clots.
- Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis – Surgical procedure where a catheter is inserted into the patient and pointed towards the clot, where it administers drugs that dissolve and break it apart.
- Thrombectomy – surgical removal of a clot.
If you have developed an Androderm blood clot, your doctor may refer you to a specialist who treats blood diseases (hematologist). Patients diagnosed with arterial disease who are at risk for developing blood clots in their arteries may have an entire medical team assisting them, including a cardiologist, hematologist, and other medical specialists.
