Update: Testosterone Warning Labels Updated to Reflect Addiction Risk
January 18, 2017 – The warning labels of all prescription testosterone supplements is being updated to include information about a risk of abuse and dependence. FDA also warned that high doses of testosterone can lead to serious adverse events affecting the heart, liver, brain, mental health and endocrine system.
The Risks of Testosterone Therapy
According to a January 2014 study which appeared in the journal PLOS ONE , testosterone users aged 65 years or older face a threefold increased risk of heart attack compared to men who do not use testosterone supplements. The PLOS ONE study is the third recent major scientific study which concluded that testosterone boosters like Striant may pose serious health risks to some users.

About Striant 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 Striant Class Action Lawsuit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members who have been injured after taking Striant.
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 Striant Lawsuits on their behalf.
