Testosterone Gel is a transdermal testosterone cream that is primarily used in male hormone replacement therapy (HRT) plans, specifically testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) plans. In recent years Testosterone Gel has become one of the most popular forms of TRT largely due to its mode of administration. The individual simply rubs the cream/gel on their skin once a day and nothing more. Undoubtedly, this has a lot more appeal than injecting testosterone, and while it has more appeal it’s not quite as effective. TestosteroneGel, similar testosterone creams or other transdermal applications will work for many men, but some men will need injectable testosterone. Injectable or transdermal, the hormone is the same.
Testosterone Gel first appeared on the market in 2000 through Unimed Pharmaceuticals and for several years would dominate the transdermal TRT market. However, in 2006 generic transdermal creams were approved by the U.S. FDA most notably by Watson, and this would put a dent in the AndroGel market. However, AndroGel still remains the dominant testosterone cream today.
The uses of Cernos Gel (Testosterone Gel 1%, Androgel ) include:
Testosterone topical gel is used to treat the symptoms of low testosterone in men who do not produce enough natural testosterone. Testosterone is a hormone that is usually produced by the body that is needed for the growth and functioning of the male sexual organs and for the development of typical male characteristics. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased sexual desire and ability, extreme tiredness, low energy, depression, brittle bones that may break easily, and loss of certain male characteristics such as muscular build and deep voice. Testosterone gel works by supplying testosterone to replace the testosterone that is normally produced in the body.
