Striant is a type of testosterone treatment that comes in the form of a tablet that adheres to the gum or inner cheek. It is meant to be taken twice a day and works by providing a continuous, gradual release of testosterone. Striant is prescribed to men who are experiencing low testosterone levels (male hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency) that often occurs as a natural part of male aging.
This type of low T treatment was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in June, 2003. It is manufactured by Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc., which purchased the U.S. rights to Striant in April 2011.
Side effects associated with this testosterone therapy include:
As a type of low T treatment, Striant has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart attack or death among men. 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.

"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."
"My mom had a catastrophic stroke as a result of taking a weight-loss product. The Simmons firm fought tirelessly to get her the best result possible. Thanks to them we can afford to get her the medical and therapeutic care she needs."
