Axiron, a popular testosterone replacement supplement, has recently been linked to serious side effects including heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, blood clots, and death. A recent study published in the journal PLOS ONE determined that men who used testosterone boosters like Axiron were at least twice as likely to have heart attacks within three months of initiating treatment compared to men who did not take testosterone. If you’ve been injured by Axiron, and are interested in filing a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers, our lawyers can help.

Axiron Linked to Heart Risks
According to the PLOS ONE study mentioned above, males over the age of 65 had heart attack rates that increased up to 3-fold within 90 days of beginning treatment. The research marks at least the third major credible scientific study that has determined that testosterone supplements like Axiron may pose serious health risks to certain users.
Two prior studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association found that patients treated with testosterone boosters – particularly those who were weak, older, or who had a pre-existing history of heart problems – faced an increased risk of suffering severe cardiovascular complications.

About Axiron Class Actions
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Axiron Class Action Lawsuit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members who have been injured after taking Axiron.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Axiron Lawsuits on their behalf.
