Testosterone injections have been clinically proven to improve the lives of men diagnosed with low testosterone, also known as low T. While testosterone replacement therapy can be administered in several ways, including testosterone creams and testosterone gels, we have found that our patients with low testosterone, achieve the best results with testosterone injections.
Why Should I Get Testosterone Injections?
Testosterone injections are used to treat men suffering with low testosterone. For such men testosterone injections are the most commonly recommended form of testosterone therapy. Testosterone therapy is used to help men, usually between the ages of 35 and 65, who may suffering from low testosterone. Only your doctor can determine if you indeed have low testosterone, and may benefit from a prescription for testosterone injections. However, these are the signs of low testosterone that you should be aware of:
Lack of energy
Weight gain, particularly belly fat
Loss of sex drive and erectile dysfunction
Anger, anxiety and depression
Testosterone injections can make up for the loss of testosterone as you age, and help you to feel younger, stronger, and improve your overall quality of life.
Where Do I Get Testosterone Injections?
If you are experiencing any or all of the above symptoms, and think you may need to get testosterone injections, you can only do so with a doctor’s prescription. You can get a prescription for testosterone injections from any doctor, however, it is best to seek your low testosterone treatment, from a clinic that specializes in hormone replacement therapy for men. Today, there are many different types of medical offices from cosmetic surgeons to general practitioners who have added testosterone therapy to the many other services and treatments they provide.

Where Do I Buy Testosterone Injections?
Once you have been diagnosed and have received your prescription for testosterone injections, you can have the prescription filled by any legitimate pharmacy. It is possible to buy testosterone injection online. However, even if you buy your testosterone injections from an online pharmacy, you still must have a legitimate doctor’s prescription to do so. Any “testosterone” product you can buy online without a prescription either is NOT actual testosterone, or is possibly testosterone from dubious and dangerous black market sources.

What Tests Are Involved to Get a Prescription for Testosterone Injections?
Before any doctor, or testosterone clinic, can write you a prescription for testosterone injections, you must be properly tested and diagnosed with low testosterone. A blood test is the most accurate way to determine you testosterone levels. The results of the test, which is usually referred to as a serum testosterone test, are reported as nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). It’s difficult to say what is considered to be a low testosterone level, since the “normal” amount will vary based on your height, weight, age and gender. However, generally speaking, the normal range for healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).
Unless otherwise specified by your doctor, you do not have to do anything special in advance of the test. Some medications, even over-the-counter drugs, can throw off the results of a testosterone serum test. So, it is important that you tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, prior to being tested for low testosterone.
The blood test for low testosterone is very simple. A healthcare provider will take a sample of blood, usually from your arm, just as in any blood test. A vile or two of your blood will be collected and this will be sent to a lab for testing. Having this kind of lab work done is the first step in determining if you do, or do not, need a prescription for testosterone injections.
Are There Any Side Effect of Testosterone Injections?
When prescribed by a skilled and experienced provider of hormone replacement therapies, prescription testosterone injections are generally safe, effective, and well-tolerated by patients. However, as with any prescription drug or medical treatment, testosterone injections do have some potential side effects. Some of the possible, but rare, side effects of testosterone therapy include:
Increased body hair
Pain or inflammation of the injection site
However, very few of our patients on testosterone replacement injections have experienced any side effects other than the most minor ones, and these can usually be addressed with a simple adjustment in dosage, or retraining on how to administer your testosterone injections.
Where Do I Get a Prescription for Testosterone Injections?
Where you get your testosterone injections from makes a difference. There are many providers of testosterone replacement today, from large national clinics, to smaller local operations. Not every provider of testosterone injections is alike, in fact many provide prescriptions for testosterone, with very little past experience in doing so.
