Endogenous androgens are responsible for normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. These effects include growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis, and scrotum; development of male hair distribution, such as beard, pubic, chest, and axillary hair; laryngeal enlargement, vocal cord thickening, and alterations in body musculature and fat distribution. Drugs in this class also cause retention of nitrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphorous, and decreased urinary excretion of calcium. Androgens have been reported to increase protein anabolism and decrease protein catabolism. Nitrogen balance is improved only when there is sufficient intake of calories and protein.
Androgens are responsible for the growth spurt of adolescence and for eventual termination of linear growth, brought about by fusion of the epiphyseal growth centers. In children, exogenous androgens accelerate linear growth rates, but may cause disproportionate advancement in bone maturation. Use over long periods may result in fusion of the epiphyseal growth centers and termination of the growth process. Androgens have been reported to stimulate production of red blood cells by enhancing production of erythropoietic stimulation factor.
During exogenous administration of androgens, endogenous testosterone release is inhibited through feedback inhibition of pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH). At large doses of exogenous androgens, spermatogenesis may also be suppressed through feedback inhibition of pituitary follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
There is a lack of substantial evidence that androgens are effective in fractures, surgery, convalescence, and functional uterine bleeding.
Testosterone esters are less polar than free testosterone. Testosterone esters in oil injected intramuscularly are absorbed slowly from the lipid phase; thus, Testosterone Cypionate can be given at intervals of two to four weeks.
Testosterone in plasma is 98 percent bound to a specific testosterone-estradiol binding globulin, and about 2 percent is free. Generally, the amount of this sex-hormone binding globulin in the plasma will determine the distribution of testosterone between free and bound forms, and the free testosterone concentration will determine its half-life.
About 90 percent of a dose of testosterone is excreted in the urine as glucuronic and sulfuric acid conjugates of testosterone and its metabolites; about 6 percent of a dose is excreted in the feces, mostly in the unconjugated form. Inactivation of testosterone occurs primarily in the liver. Testosterone is metabolized to various 17-keto steroids through two different pathways.
The half-life of Testosterone Cypionate when injected intramuscularly is approximately eight days.
In many tissues the activity of testosterone appears to depend on reduction to dihydrotestosterone, which binds to cytosol receptor proteins. The steroid-receptor complex is transported to the nucleus where it initiates transcription events and cellular changes related to androgen action.

What is testosterone injection Depo-Testosterone and how is it taken?
Testosterone is an androgen steroid drug and a naturally occurring sex hormone that is produced in a man's testicles. Small amounts of testosterone are also produced in a woman's ovaries and adrenal system.
Testosterone injection is used in men and boys to treat conditions caused by a lack of this hormone called hypogonadism or Low T, delayed puberty, impotence or erectile dysfunction, or other hormonal imbalances.
Testosterone injection is also used in women to treat breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

Depo-Testosterone treats men with andropause or hypogonadism characterized by low testosterone levels (Low-T).
Because of the cypionate ester, Depo-Testosterone is a long-acting steroid injection and patients only need to inject doses every one to two weeks.
Low T medications are linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular problems. Doctors are sounding the warning and affected men are filing legal claims.
Depo-Testosterone is an injectable hormone (androgen) replacement used to treat men diagnosed with low testosterone (Low T), and Pfizer’s unit Pharmacia & Upjohn Co. currently markets the medication.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) originally approved this drug in 1979 to treat men whose bodies do not make enough testosterone naturally. This is what most doctors prescribe the medication for, but patients sometimes use it to enhance muscle growth and athletic performance – medically unapproved uses.
While lack of testosterone can be dangerous for men, having too much can also be deadly. The dangers of androgen therapy drugs include cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke, and studies also point to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Depo-Testosterone (testosterone cypionate) is one of the older drugs of its kind on the market, and it continues to sell quietly and make money for Pfizer. In recent years it enjoyed a resurgence in popularity.
Testosterone Cypionate Warnings
Hypercalcemia may occur in immobilized patients. If this occurs, the drug should be discontinued.
Prolonged use of high doses of androgens (principally the 17-α alkyl-androgens) has been associated with development of hepatic adenomas, hepatocellular carcinoma, and peliosis hepatis —all potentially life-threatening complications.
Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.
Edema, with or without congestive heart failure, may be a serious complication in patients with pre-existing cardiac, renal or hepatic disease.
Gynecomastia may develop and occasionally persists in patients being treated for hypogonadism.
Androgen therapy should be used cautiously in healthy males with delayed puberty. The effect on bone maturation should be monitored by assessing bone age of the wrist and hand every 6 months. In children, androgen treatment may accelerate bone maturation without producing compensatory gain in linear growth. This adverse effect may result in compromised adult stature. The younger the child the greater the risk of compromising final mature height.
This drug has not been shown to be safe and effective for the enhancement of athletic performance. Because of the potential risk of serious adverse health effects, this drug should not be used for such purpose.
Testosterone Treatment Precautions
Patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy may develop acute urethral obstruction. Priapism or excessive sexual stimulation may develop. Oligospermia may occur after prolonged administration or excessive dosage. If any of these effects appear, the androgen should be stopped and if restarted, a lower dosage should be utilized.
Testosterone Cypionate should not be used interchangeably with testosterone propionate because of differences in duration of action.
Testosterone Cypionate is not for intravenous use.
Depo-Testosterone Information for patients
Patients should be instructed to report any of the following: nausea, vomiting, changes in skin color, ankle swelling, too frequent or persistent erections of the penis.
Laboratory tests Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels (to detect polycythemia) should be checked periodically in patients receiving long-term androgen administration.
Serum cholesterol may increase during androgen therapy.
Depo-Testosterone Drug interactions
Androgens may increase sensitivity to oral anticoagulants. Dosage of the anticoagulant may require reduction in order to maintain satisfactory therapeutic hypoprothrombinemia.
Concurrent administration of oxyphenbutazone and androgens may result in elevated serum levels of oxyphenbutazone.
In diabetic patients, the metabolic effects of androgens may decrease blood glucose and, therefore, insulin requirements.
Drug/Laboratory test Interferences
Androgens may decrease levels of thyroxine-binding globulin, resulting in decreased total T4 serum levels and increased resin uptake of T3 and T4. Free thyroid hormone levels remain unchanged, however, and there is no clinical evidence of thyroid dysfunction.
Carcinogenesis Animal data - Testosterone has been tested by subcutaneous injection and implantation in mice and rats. The implant induced cervical-uterine tumors in mice, which metastasized in some cases. There is suggestive evidence that injection of testosterone into some strains of female mice increases their susceptibility to hepatoma. Testosterone is also known to increase the number of tumors and decrease the degree of differentiation of chemically induced carcinomas of the liver in rats.
Human data. There are rare reports of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients receiving long-term therapy with androgens in high doses. Withdrawal of the drugs did not lead to regression of the tumors in all cases.
Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.
Testosterone and Women - Pregnancy
Teratogenic Effects, Pregnancy Category X - Nursing mothers - Testosterone Cypionate injection is not recommended for use in nursing mothers.
Testosterone Adverse Reactions
The following adverse reactions in the male have occurred with some androgens:
Endocrine and urogenital: Gynecomastia and excessive frequency and duration of penile erections. Oligospermia may occur at high dosages.
Skin and appendages: Hirsutism, male pattern of baldness, seborrhea, and acne.
Fluid and electrolyte disturbances: Retention of sodium, chloride, water, potassium, calcium, and inorganic phosphates.
Gastrointestinal: Nausea, cholestatic jaundice, alterations in liver function tests, rarely hepatocellular neoplasms and peliosis hepatis (see WARNINGS).
Hematologic: Suppression of clotting factors II, V, VII, and X, bleeding in patients on concomitant anticoagulant therapy, and polycythemia.
Nervous system: Increased or decreased libido, headache, anxiety, depression, and generalized paresthesia.
Allergic: Hypersensitivity, including skin manifestations and anaphylactoid reactions.
Miscellaneous: Inflammation and pain at the site of intramuscular injection.
Depo-Testosterone is an Anabolic Steroid Injection
Testosterone is a controlled substance under the Anabolic Steroids Control Act, and Testosterone Cypionate injection has been assigned to Schedule III.
Depo-Testosterone Cypionate Dosage and Administration - Testosterone Overdosage - There have been no reports of acute overdosage with the androgens.
Testosterone Cypionate injection is for intramuscular use only.
It should not be given intravenously. Intramuscular injections should be given deep in the gluteal muscle.
The suggested dosage for Testosterone Cypionate injection varies depending on the age, sex, and diagnosis of the individual patient. Dosage is adjusted according to the patient's response and the appearance of adverse reactions.
Various dosage regimens have been used to induce pubertal changes in hypogonadal males; some experts have advocated lower dosages initially, gradually increasing the dose as puberty progresses, with or without a decrease to maintenance levels. Other experts emphasize that higher dosages are needed to induce pubertal changes and lower dosages can be used for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose.
For replacement in the hypogonadal male, 50 to 400 mg should be administered every two to four weeks.
Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. Warming and shaking the vial should redissolve any crystals that may have formed during storage at temperatures lower than recommended.

Low Testosterone is a common hormonal condition in aging men. Low levels of testosterone affect a man’s professional and romantic relationships, sex drive, muscles, weight, bones, attitude and mood.
Testosterone Injections are the most effective Testosterone Therapy because they have numerous advantages over testosterone creams, testosterone gels and testosterone dermal patches.
One of the biggest advantages is that the testosterone hormone is delivered directly into the bloodstream where it goes to work immediately. Most men report a difference almost right away when starting a testosterone replacement program using testosterone injections.
Low T injections injected either weekly, bi-weekly or monthly are most beneficial for men suffering from low testosterone symptoms and subsequent health problems. Fill out the Quick Info Form to get more testosterone treatment information and pricing.
