Because so many factors influence how much Delatestryl you will require, there is no "one size fits all" dosage that is right for everyone. In many cases, a man's dose to increase testosterone levels will fall within the range of 50 to 400 mg once or twice a month. For breast cancer treatment in women, the amount often ranges from 200 to 400 mg.
The dose of Delatestryl® (testosterone enanthate) your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- How you respond to Delatestryl
- The medical condition being treated
- Your testosterone levels
- Other medications you may be taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
There is no one "standard" dosage for Delatestryl. Your healthcare provider will essentially guess at an appropriate starting amount, based on your age, diagnosis, and testosterone levels. From there, your healthcare provider will adjust your dosage as needed, based on how you react to the medication (how your testosterone levels change and how your symptoms improve).
The normal dosing range for this medication is 50 to 400 mg given every two to four weeks, although there are certainly plenty of individuals who end up needing a higher or lower dosage.
To start puberty in adolescent males, various dosage regimens have been suggested. Some healthcare providers like to start with a low amount and gradually work up to a higher one. Others prefer to start with a high dose, lowering it once puberty is under way.
When treating women with breast cancer, standard dosages range from 200 to 400 mg every two to four weeks.
