Recent studies have found that men who use testosterone supplements may be increasing their risk of suffering a heart attack by up to 50% or more. A heart attack occurs when the flow of oxygenated blood to part of the heart muscle gets blocked, and the heart is unable to receive oxygen. Symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, that’s why it’s important to know all the warning signs of a heart attack in advance.

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack
Not all heart attacks begin with the sudden, crushing chest pain most people associate them with. One recent study found that 30% of patients who suffered a heart attack had no chest pain at all. These patients tended to be older, female, or diabetic.
The symptoms of a heart attack can be extremely different from person to person. Some people have few if any symptoms, and are surprised when they learn they’ve suffered a heart attack. If you’ve had a heart attack in the past, your symptoms may not be the same if you have another one. This is why it’s important to know the most common symptoms of a heart attack in advance:
- Chest pain – In most patients, heart attacks start with discomfort in the center or left side of the chest. The pain typically lasts for an extended period of time (more than a few minutes), or goes away and then returns. This sensation can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, heartburn or indigestion. The feeling can be moderate to severe.
- Upper body discomfort – Heart attack victims may feel pain in 1 or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper stomach.
- Shortness of breath – In many patients this is their only symptom. Shortness of breath may occur before or along with chest pain. This symptom may occur at rest or during physical activity.
Other, less common symptoms of a testosterone heart attack may include:
- Cold sweats
- Feeling unusually tired for no reason
- Any sudden, new symptoms or a change in the pattern of symptoms you’ve already been experiencing
It’s important to understand that not everyone having a heart attack has typical symptoms. If you’ve previously suffered a heart attack, your symptoms may not be the same for another one. However, some people may have a pattern of symptoms that persist. The more warning signs you have, the greater the likelihood that you’re having a heart attack.
Can I File a Testosterone Heart Attack Lawsuit?

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 heart attack.
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 heart attack, 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.
