NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) For millions of men who have been dragged down by aging there is a drug that claims to improve strength and virility.

However, new life-threatening side effects have raised questions over whether fighting low testosterone is worth the risk.

Life moves slowly for 51-year-old Edward Downes.

Chronic pain, shortness of breath. I cant even take out a bag of trash now, he said.

Downes told CBS 2s Maurice Dubois that it all started when a doctor prescribed testosterone replacement therapy for Downes who said that he was feeling less energetic, weaker, and more tired as he aged.

I thought, Hey, I might feel a little more virile and all that too, he said.

Two years later, when Downes was in his 40s, he suffered a stroke. His wife Cathy said that it changed him forever.
