Methyltestosterone Capsules

Drug Interactions

Methyltestosterone capsules may react with a number of other medications (see Drug Interactions With Methyltestosterone Capsules).
 

What If I Overdose on This Medicine?

It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose. In one case, an individual who took too much of an injectable form of testosterone experienced a stroke, probably related to extremely high testosterone levels. However, it is unknown if methyltestosterone capsules can cause similar problems. Symptoms are most likely to occur from chronic overdoses (taking too high of a dosage on an ongoing basis), rather than a single, one-time overdose.
 
If you happen to overdose on this medication, seek immediate medical attention.

What If I Forget a Dose of Methyltestosterone Capsules?

If you happen to realize you missed a dose shortly after you were supposed to take it, take a methyltestosterone capsule as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, simply skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule.
 

How Does It Work?

This medicine contains methyltestosterone, a testosterone hormone that has been slightly altered. Testosterone itself is not usually given by mouth.
 
When medications are taken by mouth, they must first pass through the liver before they reach the bloodstream. The liver metabolizes testosterone extensively before it has a chance to reach the bloodstream, and adequate blood levels usually cannot be achieved. However, methyltestosterone is less extensively metabolized, making adequate blood levels more easily attained.
