Testosterone Cypionate Drug Information

If you have low testosterone levels, your healthcare provider may prescribe testosterone cypionate (Depo®-Testosterone). This steroid medication comes as an injection that is given every two to four weeks. It is approved for use in men and adolescent boys age 12 and older.
 
Before starting treatment with testosterone cypionate, make sure to review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. Although this is an effective hormone therapy for many men, it is not the best choice for some people. For instance, you may not be able to use this medicine if you have serious heart, liver, or kidney disease. Also, this drug may react with certain other medications and cause allergic reactions.
 
Side effects may include acne, decreased sperm count, and pain at the injection site.
