Testosterone from a clinic, Why? It’s cheaper online or at the gym! Testosterone from a clinic sounds great but, if you’ve done a little research online, you’d have found much better pricing on different online sources than what the doctor is telling you. Moreover, they deliver right to your front door. It’s a no-brainer, right? For a lot of people that begin testosterone therapy after a long run of having low testosterone levels, the new amounts of testosterone floating through their bloodstream creates almost a euphoric life experience. The problem is the fact that our testosterone recedes at such a slow pace the transition is actually seamless. All of a sudden, you just “remember” being this person that you are currently not. It’s great stuff testosterone, for people that are depleted naturally or starting to deplete.
So, what’s the problem?Unfortunately, the cost of doing a proper, healthy testosterone program under the supervision and monitor of a specialized hormone replacement physician isn’t an economically feasible option for a lot of people that could genuinely benefit from the alternative. This means, for many, obtaining Testosterone from a clinic and trusted source is just not a possibility, so they think.
So, what do they do?They hop online and try to find alternatives. What people don’t understand is, we live in a very different time. Gone are the days when only the elite of organizations was able to finance fancy websites, packaging, advertising, marketing, medication labeling and delivery systems. No sir. The internet and its resourceful means for acquisition have all of the above available to any savvy (anyone) sitting in their home-office-garage, taking phone calls in his underwear, pretending to be 3 different departments while a batch of Testosterone injections is just about ready to be extracted from his bath tub only to be bottled before shipment, which is expected at 5 pm later that afternoon. The sad part is unless you did some deeper research, you’d probably never know the difference. More importantly, you’d never know what you are actually injecting into your body when you are not obtaining your testosterone from a clinic you can research and get to know. Maybe the example above is a little bit colorful but don’t be mislead into believing it’s exaggerated or a fabrication of any sort. It’s actually a growing concern and the issue is that men that are on testosterone therapy, for the most part, don’t talk about it. So, if something happens… no one knows why and if they found out, there is no way to trace it back to the supplier.
Why should I be concerned?The truth is, there actually are some places abroad that sell medication that is essentially real and it is cheaper. It’s not only testosterone from a clinic here in the U.S.A. that you can get injectable testosterone from, especially if you are basing it solely on price. You know the old saying, though… You get what you pay for.
- How are you going to verify that the medication is real?
- Company reviews can be made up and strategized.
- If you don’t have your regulated American search options for inquiry, how and whom are you going to trust to control where that medication is coming from?
- How can you verify it was created in sterile conditions?
- How can you verify the quality of the material that was used and where it came from?
- Can you ask for a certificate of authenticity to verify the efficacy percentage of the medication your about to inject into your body?
- If something bad happened, is there anybody from that organization to contact?
- Do you get to talk to the doctor that prescribed your medication, or any physician that works directly under him/her?
- Again, what if something happened?!? – We have to think further than our eyes can see.
What to look out for?
- Is the only payment the Western Union or western union-like? Big red flag! That means, once they have your money, that’s it. There is no tracing that person. Cross your fingers.
- Can you ask for the name of the prescribing physician?
- Are you allowed to or requested to speak with your prescribing physician or any physician that works directly under him/her, as is legally required in this wonderful, standardized country of ours.
- If a website has in small print “Not for human consumption” but they are selling everything you want to buy, they are completely eliminating themselves from any possible legal repercussions after any adverse reactions you may experience.
- Can you ask for details of the pharmacy?
- What’s the pharmacy’s DEA number?
- Does the organization have a Bricks and Mortar establishment? An actual, patient-seeing location?
