Methyltestosterone Drug Information

Methyltestosterone (Methitest®, Testred®) is a prescription hormone medicine used to treat low testosterone levels in adult men. It can also help start puberty in adolescent boys who have delayed puberty and relieve the symptoms of inoperable, late-stage breast cancer in women.
 
Available in the form of a capsule or tablet, methyltestosterone is an altered form of testosterone. Because it is an altered form, methyltestosterone can be swallowed (testosterone in its original form would be significantly metabolized by the liver). Methyltestosterone capsules and tablets can be taken one to four times daily. Side effects of this medicine may include acne, liver problems, and decreased sperm count.
 
Before taking methyltestosterone, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other drugs you are taking, as well as any allergies you may have, including to medications, foods, dyes, or preservatives. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you have certain medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, heart disease, or infertility.
