Methyltestosterone Capsule Dosage

Your healthcare provider will consider your testosterone levels, the medical condition being treated, and certain other factors before prescribing a specific dose of methyltestosterone capsules. The normal dosing range for treating low testosterone levels with this medicine is 10 mg to 50 mg a day. These capsules can be taken one to four times daily.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Methyltestosterone Capsules

The dose of methyltestosterone capsules (Testred®) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Your testosterone levels
  • Any side effects you develop
  • Other medications you are 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.
 

Methyltestosterone Capsule Dosing in Males

There is no one standard dosage for methyltestosterone capsules. Your healthcare provider will essentially estimate an appropriate starting amount, based on your age, diagnosis, and testosterone levels. From there, your healthcare provider will adjust this as needed, based on how you react to the medication (how your testosterone levels change and how your symptoms improve). The normal range for this medication is 10 mg to 50 mg per day.
 
For starting puberty in adolescent males, various dosing regimens have been suggested. Some healthcare providers start with a low dosage and gradually work up to a higher amount. Others prefer to start with a high dosage, lowering it once puberty has begun.
 
Doses used to start puberty in adolescent males who have late-onset puberty are usually in the lower end of the ranges, and for a short duration, such as four to six months. Your healthcare provider will measure your child's bone age and take this and your child's actual age into consideration when determining an appropriate initial and ongoing dose.
