Testosterone Injections Brands for the Treatment of Low T
You might be surprised just how many testosterone injections brands for the treatment of Low T are on the market today. Some have recognizable names such as Depo-Testosterone or Watson, others you may never have heard of at all. Companies out of India and China may have other products that are not found here in the United States.
In fact, the listing of so-called “brand names” of testosterone injections found on some websites is mind-boggling. Where do all of these products come from? Many are manufactured in smaller warehouses and factories that work directly with some of these “wholesalers” or “drug outlets” that sell pharmaceutical products illegally. Legitimate pharmaceutical companies have strict guidelines to follow when manufacturing medications, are under continued scrutiny and supervision, and ensure proper safety when producing these items for sale. This is not what you will find overseas in companies that no one has ever heard of before.
When you are trying to decide between safe testosterone injections brands, USA guidelines will ensure that you receive only the finest quality medications from licensed pharmacies in this country. This is important to consider when you are about to inject a drug into your body. The purpose of testosterone treatment is to bring benefits to the body, not adverse side effects that can occur with an unsafe product.
Buying safe testosterone does not have to mean shelling out a lot of money. Yes, Depo-Testosterone is considered the “gold standard” when it comes to testosterone cypionate injections, as we will discuss below, but compounding pharmacies in the US produce the same medication at a much lower cost.
Testosterone Cypionate Brands
When it comes to testosterone therapy, there is none better for men with Low T than testosterone cypionate injections. This form of treatment offers superior benefits with the longest span between injections. It is also the most economically priced way of correcting low testosterone levels.
For some people, the best testosterone injections brand available today is Depo-Testosterone. There is no difference between pharmacy compounded testosterone cypionate and Depo-Testosterone or Watson, made by Pfizer and now Actavis (recently purchased Watson) respectively. All forms of testosterone cypionate are suspended in cottonseed oil and offer the longest-lasting, safe and effective treatment for Low T.
The reason some people stick with the testosterone injections brand name Depo-Testosterone is the same reason they may choose designer jeans or purses. They believe that a certain brand is better; and whether that is true or not about other things, as long as your testosterone cypionate injections come from a licensed US pharmacy, you can expect superior quality and results.
Testosterone Enanthate Brands
Testosterone enanthate injections are another excellent option, although not as commonly used as testosterone cypionate since shots have to be given more frequently. Testosterone cypionate is administered on average of once every two weeks, with testosterone enanthate once every seven to ten days. This also makes it more expensive to use than testosterone cypionate.
The most recognizable testosterone injection brand names for enanthate are Delatestryl and Watson. In this form, the medication suspension is in sesame oil. Just as with testosterone cypionate, testosterone enanthate can also be compounded by the pharmacy to the same rigid standards and high quality as the brand name medications.
Other brands of testosterone injections are not as highly recommended. Testosterone undecanoate which goes by the brand name Aveed is extremely expensive and carries an increased risk of allergic reactions. This injection must be given at the doctor’s office, and although it is longer lasting, is not recommended by most hormone specialists in the US at this time. Testosterone propionate is a short term option due to its diminished half-life and a higher risk of side effects for long-term use. It is rarely prescribed, and often only as a quick adjunct with another form of treatment for Low T.
