Group wants FDA to add warning on testosterone products

In Uncategorized on March 9, 2014 at 12:18 am

A non-profit consumer advocacy group petitioned the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to add black box warnings on product labels of all testosterone-containing drugs that will explain the increased cardiovascular risks.

Over two decades, 27 studies have been performed and 14 of them show salient increases in cardiovascular risk. The FDA is not convinced that the approved products carry that risk. Dr. Sidney Wolfe, founder and senior adviser of Public citizen’s Health Research Group is outraged by the lack of support from the FDA.
