Testosterone Pellet Dosage

General Information on Using Testosterone Pellets

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with testosterone pellets include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a pellet, which is inserted using an injection just beneath the skin (subcutaneously) every three to four months.
 
  • The testosterone pellet is inserted in a healthcare setting, such as your doctor's office or clinic.
 
  • You should avoid swimming, using a hot tub, or lifting heavy weights for a few days after receiving your injection to help reduce the chance of the pellet coming out.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Make sure to keep your appointments with your healthcare provider to receive subsequent injections.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with testosterone pellets, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
