Why quality of testosterone replacement therapy matters

Why quality of testosterone replacement therapy matters

There is a myriad of different testosterone injection products out there all claiming to treat low T better than the rest. There’s some that you may have heard of before, and others that are not even made in America, and should not be be trusted due to poor standards. Their sheer numbers can be overwhelming at times, making your decision that much more difficult when seeking testosterone replacement therapy. There are many benefits of testosterone replacement therapy for men who need it. You would not want to be wasting your time with a testosterone boosting product that is neither up to standard, nor a leader in the industry, for both safety and economical reasons. The pharmacological guidelines set forth in the United States ensure that you will receive only the safest and finest quality of products on the market from licensed pharmacies. This is especially good to consider, since you will be injecting these drugs into your body.

Testosterone Cypionate

Testosterone cypionate is often considered to be one of the best testosterone boosters on the market. It has the longest half-life (eight days) of all other injections, making it a steady and cost-effective solution. There is very little chance of having your testosterone levels spike drastically when using cypionate. All forms of testosterone cypionate are suspended in cottonseed oil for a reliable absorption and dosage. Some of the most notable brands who produce cypionate injections are Depo-Testosterone, Watson, Pfizer and Actavis. They all make a quality product that generates relatively the same results in the realm of testosterone injections. However, some may trust brand name products over generic ones; and they are willing to pay a higher price for them.

Testosterone Propionate

Is one of the fastest acting injections among its peers. The testosterone injected into the body using propionate products can peak within hours of being administered and metabolized. The half-life of propionate is three days, and injections should be administered every two to three days. This can cause somewhat of a busy treatment schedule for the patient. As a result, propionate is often only prescribed in special cases because of the frequency of injections. Nevertheless, it can quickly stabilize testosterone levels for those who need it. Today it is marketed under the names Agrovirin, Andronate, Andrusol-P, Masenate, Neo-Hombreol, Oreton, Perandren, Synandrol, and Testoviron.


Enanthate is a testosterone ester that is metabolized over the course of four or five days. In some cases it may leave behind small traces of the drug for up to two weeks. Like propionate, injections must be given more frequently (every five days), and for this reason its use is often only recommended in special cases. Your level of baseline testosterone (along with several other factors) may require you to use Enanthate injections opposed to other types. Brand names for Enanthate injections are: Delatestryl, Testostroval, Testro LA, Andro LA, Durathate, Everone, Testrin, and Andropository.

Aqueous testosterone suspension

This injection treatment is also known as “no ester.” As there is no ester present to support a slower absorption rate, it requires very frequent injections because doesn’t remain in the body for very long at suitable levels. It is one of the least prescribed injections on the market for TRT but can reversibly and completely suppress the production of sperm in men, and has been used as a contraceptive in the past. Other than that, it does not have much use since the advancement of cypionate and propionate injections.

Even though there are so many different types of injections, choosing the right testosterone replacement therapy for you is easy. Call today to get your evaluation started!
