Testosterone Patch Information

A healthcare provider may prescribe the testosterone patch (Androderm®) to treat low testosterone levels caused by various conditions. This medication is only approved for use in men, although there are some "off-label," or unapproved, uses for women.
 
This medicine comes as a patch that is applied to the skin every evening. Apply the patch at the same time every day, between 8 p.m. and midnight. It works by mimicking the normal daily variation of testosterone levels in healthy young men, which results in high testosterone levels in the morning and low levels in the evening.
 
Before starting treatment with the testosterone patch, make sure to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. For example, you may not be able to use this product if you have certain allergies, heart problems, or liver disease. Also, this drug may react with certain other medications. Possible side effects may include skin reactions at the application site, such as redness and itching.
