Methyltestosterone Tablet Side Effects

Possible Side Effects

Methyltestosterone tablets are an older medication. As such, the side effect information provided in the prescribing information is not highly detailed, as it is for newer medications. In fact, the prescribing information for this medication simply lists side effects that have been reported with androgens in general, not specifically for methyltestosterone tablets. No specific percentages are provided.
According to this limited information, some of the possible side effects of methyltestosterone tablets include but are not limited to:
  • Breast development (in men)
  • Increased frequency and duration of penile erections (in men)
  • Low sperm count, especially at high dosages (in men)
  • Body and facial hair growth
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Acne
  • Increased or decreased sex drive
  • Headache.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the methyltestosterone tablet side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking methyltestosterone tablets. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
