A new study funded by the National Institutes of Health found that older men and younger men with a history of heart problems were more likely to have a heart attack in the months after starting prescription testosterone medication. The study released on January 29, 2014 by the journal PLos ONE tracked approximately 56,000 older and middle aged men who received prescriptions for testosterone between 2008 and 2010. The study revealed that that men age 65 and older had double the rate of heart attacks in the three months after starting the drug, as well as men under the age of 65 with a previous history of heart disease.
