Testosterone Gel Drug Information

Testosterone gel (AndroGel®, Fortesta™, Testim®) is used to treat symptoms of low testosterone in men, such as:
 
  • Low sex drive (libido)
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Decreased muscle mass and increased fat mass.
 
This product is applied to the skin once a day, preferably in the morning. Although most people tolerate it well, testosterone gel is not right for everyone. Safety information on this drug should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This includes knowing what products could interact with it and being aware of possible side effects, such as acne, breast development, and high blood pressure.
