There are many forms of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), including injections, topical skin and nasal gels, patches and testosterone pellets. All forms of TRT are considered FDA schedule III controlled substances and cannot be bought without a prescription. Only men with symptoms of low testosterone and confirmed blood tests should consider testosterone replacement.
A relatively small number of men may experience side effects of testosterone treatment Possible side effects of testosterone therapy include: increased acne, fluid retention, increased urination, breast enlargement, decreased testicular size, decreased sperm count, increased aggressive behaviors, sleep disturbances. Doctors also watch out for high red blood cell counts, which could increase the risk of clotting. The benefits of TRT usually outweigh potential risks. Talking with your doctor is the only way to know if testosterone therapy is right for you.
