Side Effects From Using Injectable Testosterone

Prostate Problems, injectable Testosterone, Prostate

Are there any side effects from using injectable Testosterone?

As with any medication, the possibility of side effects does exist from the administration of injectable testosterone. Remember that AAI Rejuvenation Clinic’s contracted, USA-based pharmacies only use bio-identical Testosterone. Bio-identical means it’s the same as your body produces. Most medications that your primary care physician would prescribe are synthetic and subject to an increased possibility of side effects emerging. Your body is organic, so most of your medication should be organic. If not, you expect your body to accept and deal positively with the synthetic material. This popular misconception is where most of the issues emerge.

Remember that properly administered testosterone inadequate dosages pertinent to the individual patient’s file characteristics, accompanying preventive, supplemental nutraceuticals, can be an invaluable positive tool in optimizing a person’s life. Patients that participate in physician-supervised protocols mostly have successful, beneficial experiences with little to no side effects from therapy.

Possible Side Effects from injectable Testosterone therapy may be:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Skin color changes
  • Increased/Decreased sexual interest
  • Oily skin
  • Hair loss
  • Breast swelling in men
  • Numbness or tingly feeling
  • Acne
  • Pain, swelling, and redness at the injection site may also occur.

The dosage for injectable Testosterone will vary depending on the sex, age, and diagnosis of the participating patient. The dosage is adjusted according to the patient’s response. Injectable testosterone may interact with blood thinners, insulin or oral diabetes medication, or steroids. Tell your doctor about all medicines you use. Injectable testosterone must not be used during pregnancy. It may harm a fetus. Consult your doctor to discuss birth control. Breastfeeding while using this drug is not recommended.

Seek immediate emergency medical help if you experience some or any of the following signs of an allergic reaction:
