Initiating puberty in boys who have delayed puberty.
This medicine comes in the form of a capsule that is taken by mouth one to four times daily. Although most forms of testosterone cannot be taken orally, as the liver would completely metabolize the drug, Testred contains methyltestosterone, a testosterone hormone that has been slightly altered. This form does not get completely broken down by the liver.
