Testosterone is a naturally occurring male hormone necessary for many processes in the body. Testosterone topical (for the skin) is used to treat conditions in men that result from a lack of natural testosterone. Testosterone topical may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Testim is an androgen drug and is the synthetic version of the testosterone hormone that is naturally produced in human beings. Testim is used in hormone replacement therapy where it increases the levels of testosterone in males who under produce the hormone. It also treats hypogonadism by simply activating the androgen receptors, which later increase the androgen effects in the body causing an increase in testosterone levels.
Testim (testosterone gel) is a steroid hormone derived from androgen, a natural, synthetic compound found in human beings and other vertebrates. Testim is used as a hormone replacement in men who are unable to produce enough testosterone. Testim also helps the body develop and maintain characteristics associated with masculinity such as deep voice and hair. Testim also helps the body maintain muscle and prevent bone loss.
Testim is absorbed into the body via the skin and into the bloodstream. Once in the body, Testim works by helping the patient obtain healthy testosterone levels. Testim provides continuous delivery of testosterone for 24 hours after it has been applied to the skin.
