Low T drugs are expensive, and they can be unnecessary and even potentially dangerous to take.
As a lawyer who sues drug low T drug companies, I find it ironic that most costly prescription drugs, such as AndroGel, also happen have the largest advertising budgets. It is also how these drugs are marketed directly to men that troubles me.
Full-page advertisements paid for by the makers or low testosterone drugs are found in men’s magazines. Similar ads pepper internet sports blogs, asking these kinds of intimate questions:
- “Have you noticed a recent deterioration of your ability to play sports?”
- “Do you have a decrease in sex drive?”
- “Do you have low energy?”
Most men would say yes, although not to anyone other than to their doctor, which is precisely the aim of the ads. They encourage men (preferably those with good health insurance) to ask their physicians to diagnose them with a newly-minted medical condition called Low Testosterone or more commonly, Low T.
