Testosterone Replacement Therapy
October 29, 2012
Testosterone replacement therapy can be prescribed as an intramuscular injection usually given on a biweekly basis, as a patch or gel placed on the skin, or as putty that is applied to the gums of the mouth. Each of the treatments has its risks and benefits.
The decision as to which form of testosterone to use depends upon the clinical situation. Discussions between the patient and health care practitioner often helps decide which medication to use.
