FDA Warns About Abuse of Testosterone Products

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a new warning regarding the abuse potential of prescription testosterone products that can lead to serious side effects, including damage to the heart, brain, liver, mental health and endocrine system.

Testosterone and other anabolic-androgenic steroids are abused by adults and adolescents, including athletes and body builders. Abuse of testosterone is associated with adverse outcomes including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, depression, hostility, aggression, liver toxicity and male infertility.
