As the male body ages, the testosterone levels naturally decrease.  This can cause the individual to experience symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, decreased sex drive, or hair loss.  Many of these are natural signs of aging, yet they are still troublesome to the person that is experiencing the symptoms.  In order to alleviate the symptoms, these individuals are often prescribed a low testosterone therapy drug.  Unfortunately, millions of men use these drugs without fully understanding the serious side effects.  Side effects that recent studies have shown can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, or death.  Despite these negative side effects, the number of men taking these supplements has been increasing dramatically in recent years.

Popularity of Testosterone Drugs

Testosterone has been used in a clinical setting for nearly 80 years.  However, it has been within the past two decades that the popularity in treating low testosterone has exploded.  The United States alone saw almost a 10 fold increase in the number of prescriptions between the years 2000 and 2011.  There are a number of reasons that the popularity of these drugs has increased recently.  Primarily the FDA loosened the restrictions on to whom the drug could be prescribed.  This allowed physicians to prescribe it to more men without going off-label.  In addition to this, the drug manufacturers have stepped up their advertising campaigns.  The result is that a million dollar industry surged to a billion dollar industry in just about a decade.  It also has left millions more men suffering from the negative side effects of taking a testosterone supplement drug.

These negative side effects are nothing to brush aside.  While every drug has side effects, and new users will often experience some until their body gets adjusted to the influx of chemicals, many drugs also have long term side effects.  Testosterone therapy drugs are no different.  Studies show that using testosterone boosting drugs increases an individual’s risk of heart disease, stroke, blood clots, various types of cancer, and many other serious illnesses.
