prescription testosterone

Jul 13, 2008

I take testosterone replacement shots and am wandering if it is legal for my doctor to prescribe me the bottle where i can take the shots at home myself?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Yes, it is entirely possible for your doctor to prescribe the testosterone bottle to you. We have some patients who do administer their shots at home. A related question is whether any of the topical testosterone gel products might be an easier (and needle-free) way to get the testosterone.
