Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) products have recently become popular among men seeking to increase their sex drive and counteract the natural symptoms of aging. However, there is growing concern that these supplements have serious side effects and long-term risks, particularly related to stroke and other cardiovascular problems. This article describes the symptoms that testosterone users may experience when they are having a stroke.

What are the Signs of a Stroke?
If you are a testosterone user, you may be at an increased risk of having a stroke. This is why it is important that you are able to recognize the following stroke warning signs:
- Face – Look in the mirror and try to smile. Does one side of your face droop?
- Arms – Raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
- Speech – Repeat a simple phrase. Is your speech slurred or strange?
- Time – If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be having a stroke. Call 9-1-1 right away.
Note the time when the first symptoms appear. If administered within 3 hours of the initial symptoms, clot busting drugs may reduce long-term disability for most strokes.
- Sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm or leg – especially on 1 side of the body.
- Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.
- Sudden vision problems.
- Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
- Sudden headache with no known cause.

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 stroke.
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 stroke, 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.
