On January 31, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Safety Alert stating that it is "investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in men taking FDA-approved testosterone products." The Safety Alert follows an article published in the November, 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which reported a link between testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and an increased risk for adverse outcomes and/or Low-T therapy side effects, including:

Specifically, among the 8,700 patients in the study, men on testosterone replacement therapy experienced complications at a rate 29% higher than those who did not receive TRT. Testosterone is a hormone essential to the development of male growth and masculine characteristics.

The treatment is intended to boost or supplement a patient's hormone levels and is sold under the brand names:

While the FDA did not recall TRT, originally marketed as a safe treatment for men with low testosterone,there is growing concern among critics that TRT has been over-prescribed to men with testosterone that is not consistently below 300 ng/dL, and to men who have never had their testosterone levels tested.
