It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose with Axiron. In one case, an individual who took too much injectable testosterone experienced a stroke, probably related to extremely high testosterone levels. It is not known if this is likely or even possible with Axiron.
If you happen to overdose on this medication, seek immediate medical attention.
If you happen to realize you missed a dose shortly after the scheduled time, you can either skip the missed dose or take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if you are more than a few hours late, it is probably best just to skip it and continue with your regular schedule tomorrow.
