Fortesta is a type of testosterone treatment that comes in the form of a topical gel. It has a 2 percent testosterone concentration and is applied directly to the skin on the front and inner thighs among men experiencing low testosterone levels. Although a decline in natural testosterone production is normal as men age, it may be accompanied by undesirable health effects, such as hair loss, reduced muscle density and lower libido.
Fortesta was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Dec. 29, 2010. It is manufactured by the company Endo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Side effects associated with Fortesta include:
Along with different types of low T treatments, Fortesta has 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 not taking low T treatments.
The manufacturer of Fortesta and other testosterone medications may have failed to warn consumers of the increased risk of heart attack, stroke or death while taking the therapies.

"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."
