On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than treating low testosterone in men. These are known as "off-label" uses. Off-label Axiron uses include treating the following conditions:
- Low testosterone in women (even though testosterone is thought of as a "male" hormone, women also produce a little of it)
- Slightly low but still considered normal testosterone levels in men.
