How are Testosterone Blood Clots Treated?
If you have developed a testosterone-induced blood clot, your doctor may give you prescription drugs to treat it. This type of medication is called a blood thinner, also known as an anticoagulant. Most patients will follow this treatment plan:
- For the 1st week after being diagnosed with a dangerous blood clot, you will receive a fast-acting drug called heparin, which is injected under the skin. You will learn how to give yourself these shots, or a family member or friend may administer the injections for you.
- You will also start taking Coumadin (generic: warfarin) pills by mouth. After about a week, you will stop taking the heparin shots. You will continue to take Coumadin for three to six months longer.
- If testosterone supplements are determined to be the cause of your blood clot, your doctor will likely recommend that you discontinue treatment.

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of testosterone supplements, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that manufacturers failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of blood clot.
How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of a testosterone replacement therapy product, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your blood clot, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the drug’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective drug into the marketplace, and to discourage other pharmaceutical companies from engaging in similar conduct.
