Expand Andriol Testocaps 19 Oct 2020
 
The name of your medicine is Andriol Testocaps.
Andriol Testocaps is used in adult men for testosterone replacement to treat various health problems caused by a lack of testosterone (male hypogonadism). Your doctor will confirm this by blood testosterone measurements and also clinical symptoms such as inability to get or maintain an erection (impotence), infertility, low sex drive, tiredness, depressive moods, or bone loss caused by low hormone levels.
Each capsule contains 40 mg of the active ingredient called testosterone undecanoate. Testosterone undecanoate is turned into testosterone by your body. Testosterone is a natural male hormone known as an androgen, a type of sex hormone necessary for the normal sexual development of males.
In men testosterone is produced by the testicles. It is necessary for the normal growth, development and function of the male sex organs and for secondary male sex characteristics. It is necessary for the growth of body hair, the development of bones and muscles, and it stimulates the production of red blood cells. It also makes men's voices deepen.
Because of problems with the pituitary or testis, the production of testosterone by the body decreases.
Men may suffer from complaints such as depression, loss of motivation or concentration, and loss of sexual desire. Andriol Testocaps can relieve these complaints. It can also relieve these symptoms in men who have had their testis removed. Relief of symptoms usually starts within a few days, but optimal results are obtained after weeks to months of treatment.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you.
A doctor's prescription is required to obtain this medicine.
