There are many questions to ask, including what exactly qualifies as Low T, and what can you expect from Low T treatment? Your doctor may prescribe Natesto and can explain your treatment. Only your doctor has the answers you need.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hypogonadism is a term used to describe low testosterone in men. It occurs when the male testes are unable to produce sufficient testosterone (the male sex hormone). Testosterone is made by the testes and is regulated in the brain by the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. The testosterone hormone plays a key role in muscle mass, masculine growth and development of the male sex organs and maintenance of other important physical characteristics of men.

A topical treatment is applied externally on the body where it can be absorbed by the skin or mucous membranes.

Natesto is a prescription medicine, in the form of a nasal gel that contains testosterone and is used to treat adult males who have low or no testosterone due to certain medical conditions.

Your doctor will test the testosterone level in your blood before you start to check for testosterone deficiency and while you are using Natesto. Look for symptoms like low energy, reduced libido, mental and emotional changes, reduced muscle mass, and concentration.

Natesto is the first and only FDA-approved intranasal testosterone replacement therapy.1 Other medicines used to treat testosterone deficiency come in the form of testosterone injection, skin patch, and skin gel. By contrast, Natesto is a topical gel applied in the nose, and is not required by the FDA to display a “Black Box Warning”.

The FDA requires prescription drugs like testosterone patches and gels to display a Black Box Warning on the prescription drug’s label. This is because the drugs can cause users to experience serious side effects and adverse reactions that may lead to disability, hospitalization, or death. This warning is designed to call attention to serious or life-threatening risks. Click here to download “A Guide To Drug Safety Terms at FDA.”

Before using Natesto, tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have or have had nose (nasal) or sinus problems or nasal or sinus surgery
  • Have had a broken nose (fracture) within the past 6 months
  • Have or have had a fracture of your nose that caused the inside of your nose to be crooked (deviated anterior nasal septum)
  • Have or have had problems with swelling of the lining of your nose (mucosal inflammatory disorder)
  • Have breast cancer
  • Have or might have prostate cancer
  • Have urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate
  • Have heart problems
  • Have liver or kidney problems
  • Have problems breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea)
