Active substance - Testosterone
Androgen drug. Endogenous androgens (mainly testosterone) secreted by the testicles, and their main metabolite dihydrotestosterone are responsible for the development of the external and internal genitals and for the development and preservation of secondary sexual signs (stimulation of hair growth, vomiting), libido. They have a general effect on the anabolism of proteins, on the development of skeletal muscles and the distribution of subcutaneous fat, reduce excretion with urine of nitrogen, sodium, potassium, chlorides, phosphates and water. Testosterone does not cause the development of testicles: it reduces the pituitary secretion of gonadotropins.
The effects of testosterone on some target organs appear after peripheral conversion of testosterone to estradiol, which then binds to estrogen receptors in the nuclei of target organ cells (such as hypophysis, adipose tissue, brain, bones, etc.).
The recommended daily dose is 5 g of gel (i.e. 50 mg of testosterone). The drug is used 1 time / day at about the same time of day, preferably in the morning. The daily dose can be adjusted depending on clinical and laboratory parameters, but should not exceed 10 g of gel. Correction of the dosage regimen should be carried out in steps of 2.5 g of gel / day.
To adjust the dose of the drug, it is necessary to determine the concentration of testosterone in the serum in the morning, before using the drug, from the third day after the start of treatment (within one week). The dose can be reduced if the plasma testosterone content is increased or, on the contrary, increased if the testosterone concentration is low.
