Proceed and Choose Treatment


What is Testogel 16.2 mg/g and what does it do?

Testogel is a topical treatment containing the male hormone testosterone. It is used in adult men who have been diagnosed with testosterone deficiency. Each pump actuation delivers 1.25g of gel, of which 20.25mg is testosterone.

This topical treatment works to increase low testosterone levels in men. The gel is applied on the skin and absorbed over time.

Please note, Testogel must not be used unless you have been diagnosed with low testosterone. This medicine is not suitable for use in women.

When is this treatment prescribed?

Testogel may be prescribed to adult men who have been diagnosed with low testosterone levels, a condition known as hypogonadism.

At the hospital, low testosterone is usually diagnosed by laboratory blood tests in combination with clinical signs.

Please note, symptoms of low testosterone alone are not enough to diagnose hypogonadism. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms but have not been diagnosed with hypogonadism (low testosterone), you must consult your GP or nearest clinic before using Testogel.

Symptoms may include:

  • Erectile dysfunction (for example weak erection or no morning erection).
  • Loss of body hair.
  • Low or absent sex drive.
  • Muscle loss and loss of strength.
  • Abnormal breast growth.

Is Testogel suitable for my condition?

The suitability of Testogel is determined by our doctors in combination with diagnosis of hypogonadism.

When you request your medication, you will be prompted to fill in a health questionnaire. The details you provide will be reviewed by our doctors to ensure this treatment is safe and suitable for you to use.

Important: Certain medicines and health conditions may affect the suitability of Testogel, and may also affect how this medicine works. It is important that you let our doctors know of any other medicines you may take, or any other health conditions you may have by including these in the health questionnaire.

  • If you are allergic to testosterone or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.

  • You are suffering from severe heart, liver or kidney disease as Testogel may cause your body to retain water.
