Tostran Gel works by entering your bloodstream through your skin where it helps your body to reach and maintain normal testosterone levels.
What type of medication is it?
Tostran Gel is a form of testosterone replacement therapy. This means it helps your body replace a hormone, in this case, testosterone, that it is unable to produce enough of itself.
What are the active ingredients?
The active ingredient in Tostran Gel is testosterone, which is a type of androgen.
What causes low testosterone, and how does Tostran Gel treat it?
As you get older, the amount of testosterone in your body will drop gradually. This starts to happen naturally as you age and continues throughout your life.
There are several potential causes of low testosterone, such as:
- infection or injury of the testes
- chemotherapy for cancer
- medications like opioids, steroids, and hormones used to treat prostate cancer
- alcohol abuse
- Kallman syndrome
Some of the symptoms of low testosterone include:
- low sex drive
- depressed mood
- erectile dysfunction (ED)
- irritability and moodiness
- difficulties with memory and concentration
Tostran Gel can help to boost testosterone levels, and potentially get rid of any symptoms of low testosterone.
Tostran Gel dosage
The normal starting dose of Tostran Gel is 3g of gel (which contains 60mg of testosterone) each day. This dose may be altered by your doctor. Youre dose should never exceed 4g of gel (80mg of testosterone) each day.
If you are unsure how much gel to use, you should always ask your doctor or pharmacist first.
How long does it take for Tostran Gel to work?
Tostran Gel usually starts working right away and you should see the effects within the first few weeks. If you do not see improvements within 3-6 months, you should speak to your doctor. You may need a different dose or need to try a different testosterone replacement therapy.
How effective is Tostran Gel?
Research shows that, in patients with testosterone deficiency, replacing testosterone can lead to an improvement in muscle mass, bone strength, erectile dysfunction and lipid and glucose profiles.
