Testosterone Pellets for Men

Approved only for use in men, testosterone pellets (Testopel®) are prescribed to help increase low testosterone levels caused by various conditions. These pellets are also approved to help start puberty in adolescent boys for whom it is delayed.
 
Your healthcare provider will insert these pellets using an injection just beneath the skin. After implanted, the pellets will slowly release testosterone as they dissolve over a period of three to six months.
