Testogel is a topical hormone replacement treatment for men who suffer from hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency. The active ingredient of Testogel is testosterone.
Testosterone is the male sex hormone (androgen) which regulates sex drive (libido), sperm count, fat distribution, as well as bone and muscle mass. As men age, their levels of testosterone slowly drop. Following a surgical removal of the testicles or disease of the testicles, such as hypogonadism, the levels of testosterone fall much faster.
This drop is testosterone production in the body can cause symptoms such as:
Testogel returns testosterone levels in affected men to a normal range, relieving the symptoms.
Testogel is only recommended if you have been diagnosed with low testosterone levels and experience symptoms. If symptoms are not present, testogel may not be recommended.
Testogel is available in a pump for easy application. A single pump of Testogel contains approximately 20.25 mg of testosterone. The typical dose is 2 pumps or 2.5g of gel containing 40.5 mg of testosterone. The gel is directly applied to clean and clear skin around the shoulders. Always apply as directed by the doctor.
Before you use the pump for the first time, remember to prime it by pressing the plunger down 3 times. Do not use the gel from these 3 presses. Safely discard of this unused gel and thoroughly wash all surfaces which came into contact with the gel.
Apply the gel to the surface of the skin around the shoulders and gently rub in to create a thin and even layer of the treatment. Leave the gel for 3 to 5 minutes to allow the testosterone to be absorbed by the skin.
After applying the treatment, wash your hands thoroughly. Cover the site of application with clothing.
All medication carries the risk of side effects. Educating yourself on the potential associated side effects and being vigilant of any changes you experience over the course of your treatment is important. Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medication.
Common side effects include:
Uncommon side effects include:
You must apply the gel yourself and should not let anybody else apply the gel for you.
If you miss a dose of Testogel, do not use more gel to make up for the missed dose.
Do not change the dosage or stop the treatment unless given the doctors consent.
Before intimate contact, take a shower or cover the site of application to reduce the risk of somebody else coming into contact with the gel.
Keep the treatment out of sight and reach of children and pets.
Some men taking Testogel begin to notice an improvement in 3 weeks, though it may take longer to experience any significant benefit to the medicine.
If you accidentally apply too much Testogel, seek advice from a doctor immediately.
No interactions are known between Testogel and alcohol consumption.
However, drinking alcohol can exacerbate the symptoms of low testosterone levels.
There are no special storage instructions for Testogel.
If you struggle to remember when to take your medicine, store it in a place you will most likely remember to take it.
Generally, all medicines should be kept out of sight and reach of children.
While Testogel can improve symptoms such as low sex drive, fatigue and overall sexual function, it may decrease the body's ability to produce sperm, though this may not happen in all men who use this treatment. Speak to your doctor about how Testogel may impact your fertility for more information.
The pump is generally recommended over the sachets as it is easier to use and delivers a more consistent amount of testosterone.
