Depo-Testosterone is a brand name for testosterone cypionate, which is a prescription medication used to treat low testosterone levels in men. Testosterone is a hormone that plays a crucial role in the development of male sexual characteristics, as well as in maintaining muscle mass and bone density.
Depo-Testosterone is usually given as an injection into the muscle every two to four weeks, depending on the dosage prescribed by a healthcare provider. It is important to follow the dosing instructions carefully and never to use more than prescribed.
Depo-Testosterone can cause side effects, including acne, increased body hair growth, mood changes, and swelling at the injection site. More serious side effects, such as blood clots, heart attack, stroke, and liver problems, can occur.
