It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose. In one case, an individual who received too much injectable testosterone experienced a stroke, probably related to extremely high testosterone levels. It is not known if this is possible or likely with Fortesta.
If you happen to overdose on this medicine, seek immediate medical attention.
This medication should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep Fortesta and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets. Be sure to dispose of the used canister in such a way as to prevent accidental use by children or pets.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you happen to realize you missed a dose shortly after you were supposed to apply it, it is fine to either skip the missed dose or take it as soon as you remember. However, if you are more than a few hours late for your dose, it is probably best just to skip it and continue with your regular schedule the next day.
Fortesta comes in a 60-gram canister with 120 pumps, with 10 mg of testosterone per pump.
