Men Home > Testopel Implantation
The dosage of Testopel® (testosterone pellets) will vary from person to person, depending on your age, your testosterone levels, and other medications you are taking. The medicine comes in the form of a small pellet that is implanted just beneath the skin in the hip area. After implantation, Testopel releases testosterone as it slowly dissolves over the course of three to six months.
Because this pellet is implanted under the skin, it can be difficult for your healthcare provider to adjust your dose. If treatment needs to be stopped for any reason, the Testopel pellet may need to be surgically removed.
