TESTOPEL® is an option for treating Low T
If your doctor finds that you have Low T, he or she may decide that testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is right for you.
Of all of the forms of TRT in the US, only one is FDA approved and available to help restore testosterone for 3 to 4 months, sometimes as long as 6 months per dose — that’s TESTOPEL®.
TESTOPEL® is not a daily treatment, or even weekly, which is good because men hate remembering things.
Because TESTOPEL® is not applied to the skin, TESTOPEL® can't rub off of your skin when you embrace your wife or children.
TESTOPEL® is a testosterone pellet—the only testosterone pellet—approved by the FDA and available to help increase testosterone levels in men with Low T.
TESTOPEL® pellets are implanted at your doctor’s office by a healthcare provider under the skin in the hip area or another fatty area.
TESTOPEL® specific side effects may include pain and swelling at the implantation site. See Important Safety Information below.
TESTOPEL® is covered by a majority of commercial insurance plans.
Some common questions about TESTOPEL®:
How big is a TESTOPEL® pellet?
TESTOPEL®, relative to a dime, is shown below.
Where is TESTOPEL® placed?
TESTOPEL® is implanted by a healthcare provider, just underneath the skin, typically in the hip area or another fatty area.
How will my healthcare provider know when to replace my TESTOPEL®?
Talk with your healthcare provider when you feel your symptoms of Low T returning. Your healthcare provider will order a blood test to measure your
current level of testosterone to determine when you have fallen below the normal range.
Are there people who should not receive TESTOPEL®?
Yes. You should not receive TESTOPEL® or any form of TRT if you have known or suspected prostate cancer or breast cancer or have had an adverse
reaction to the product. Also, pregnant women or women trying to get pregnant should not use TESTOPEL® or any TRT. Please see the Important
Safety Information below.
Will my insurance pay for TESTOPEL®?
The majority of insurance plans do cover TESTOPEL®. Your healthcare provider’s office can work with the TESTOPEL® Reimbursement Program to explore your
specific benefit coverage and provide appropriate direction. As with all medical conditions, your healthcare provider is your primary source for information.Not actual size
Some common questions about TESTOPEL®:
Can TESTOPEL® be transferred or “rubbed off” on my partner?
No. Because TESTOPEL® pellets are implanted by a healthcare provider under the skin, not applied topically to the skin, there’s no chance for testosterone
to “transfer” to others. Transfer is possible with topical treatments, and happens when other people come into contact with the application area. Because
testosterone is a hormone that regulates sexual growth, such transfer can cause problems for women and children.
Side effects of TESTOPEL® include more erections than normal or erections that last a long time, nausea, vomiting, changes in skin color, ankle swelling,
changes in body hair, breast enlargement or tenderness, male pattern baldness, acne, suppression of certain clotting factors, bleeding in patients on blood
thinners, an increase or decrease in libido, headache, anxiety, depression, inflammation and pain at the implantation site, and rarely, anaphylactoid reaction.
