Types Of Prescription Testosterone Pills
Types, Benefits and Risks Of Pill Based TRT
Testosterone Replacement Therapy is often offered to men by their doctors when they are suffering the effects of reduced testosterone production.. if left unchecked and untreated, they could endure a number of detrimental side effects including:
- Lack Of Sex Drive
- Reduced Muscle Tone
- Depleted Strength
- Increased Body Fat
- Poor Moods /Inability To Concentrate
- Reduced Sleep
Of all the current methods of treatment, pills on the whole are the least used.. this is partially due to the fact that they have to pass through the liver enroute to the digestive system.. this can both reduce the effectiveness of the drug and also can bring with it a risk of harm to the liver itself
Taking Testosterone Pills
It is best to always take with food and it is recommended to take the pills evenly throughout a 24 hr period to sustain and maintain the increased levels of testosterone being introduced into the body.
A typical treatment plan will usually be something along these lines:
- Weeks 1-3 take between 125mg and 160mg per day
- After the initial period the dose is usually reduced to somewhere between 40mg and 120mg per day
It is important to not break or crush the tablets as this could reduce the effectiveness of the treatment and could open the door for some quite unpleasant side effects.
Types Of Testosterone Pills
Aside from the conventional pill or capsule that are swallowed with food and water, there are pills known as Buccal pills.. these are not swallowed, instead they are placed in the socket between the lip and the top teeth where they dissolve and pass the testosterone into the blood stream.. this method does bypass the liver and is thought to be the best way to minimise side effects.
Pills that are placed under the tongue to dissolve are also available, these are known as sublingual pills Testosterone Pills
Popular brands of buccal pills include Arrow, Panteston and Striant
Testosterone Pills – The Good Stuff
Users will usually feel the benefit of this treatment quite quickly with noticeable increases in strength, muscle tone, moods and sex drive… pills are convenient and generally easy to take.
Testosterone Pills – The Bad Stuff
Testosterone pills do run the risk of causing the same side effects as other prescription based treatments:
- Breathing Issues
- Irregular Heart Rate
- Increased Risk Of Strokes
- Allergic Reactions
- Swellings and/or changes in the testicles
Pills are also known to cause stomach disorders. sickness, and changes to stool colour.
They are not cheap either… costs average around $190 per month
Buccal Pills also carry other risks…there are concerns that any mouth to mouth contact (kissing) within an hour of taking the pill could potentially expose your partner to secondary exposure.
PiIls and all other forms of prescription testosterone therapy do carry some risks… some potentially fatal.. for this reason, we do strongly recommend that you consider a natural form of testosterone booster.. unlike drug base treatments that deliver synthetic testosterone into your body, these natural products promote and encourage you body to produce more of your own natural genetic testosterone… this is far less likely to cause and adverse reactions or side effects.
