Androderm is a type of testosterone treatment that comes in the form of a patch. Also known as a testosterone transdermal patch, it works by supplementing or replacing the testosterone that is naturally produced by the body. Androderm is often prescribed to men experiencing the effects of low testosterone (male hypogonadism) and testosterone deficiency.
Produced by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Androderm was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1995. It’s low-dose, small patch version secured FDA approval in 2011. The new formulation of the patch had a 20 percent reduction in its active ingredient as well as a smaller patch size.
The testosterone transdermal patch is applied to clean, dry skin on the back, stomach, upper arms or thighs. Serious side effects associated with Androderm include:
Androderm and other low T treatments have been linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart attack or death. Studies have shown that men with heart problems were more likely to suffer a stroke, heart attack or death compared to healthy men who were not taking low T treatments such as Androderm.

"I lost my wife to a heart attack caused by a dangerous drug. While nothing I do will ever bring her back, the Simmons firm helped ensure that other people won’t have to suffer the same loss as me. That product is no longer on the market and the company responsible for selling it to my wife paid a heavy financial price for hurting people like her."
