Men Home > Striant Side Effects
In clinical studies, most men were able to use Striant without any problems. However, side effects did occur, and mouth or gum irritation was the most commonly reported reaction. Other common side effects of Striant included headache, gum pain, and a bitter taste. If you develop any potentially serious reactions during treatment, such as hostility, tell your healthcare provider right away.
An Introduction to Striant Side EffectsJust like any medicine, Striant™ (testosterone buccal tablet) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will experience problems. Most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Striant. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
