Special precautions before using topical testosterone
Tell your doctor if you have a known or suspected allergy to testosterone or other medications. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and non-prescription medications (including supplements) that you take or are planning to take. In particular, it’s important to mention if you take any anticoagulants (blood thinners), oral steroids, prednisone, or insulin. Tell your doctor if you have a history of breast or prostate cancer. Tell your doctor if you have a history of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), diabetes, high blood calcium levels, sleep apnea, or heart, liver, kidney or lung disease. Tell your doctor if you are attempting or anticipating attempting conception with a female partner since testosterone medication can diminish sperm production.
Testosterone can be inadvertently transferred from your body to others. This can happen if other people come into contact with the skin area where the testosterone was applied, especially if it was recently applied or is uncovered. You can reduce the risk of inadvertent transfer by covering the area of application with clothing. Wash your hand with soap and water immediately after applying medication to yourself. Inadvertent transference can be especially problematic when it involves women or children. If a woman or child (or any unintended person) comes into contact with the gel, she or he needs to wash the skin with soap and water. Testosterone containers should be closed and kept in a safe place that is inaccessible to children and others that may purposely or accidentally use it. If a woman who may have come into contact with testosterone develops acne or hair growth on new areas of her body, she should contact her doctor immediately. If a child who may have come into contact with testosterone develops enlarged genitals, increased erections or sexual desire, or aggressive behavior, contact the child’s doctor immediately. Women who are, or may become, pregnant and may have been exposed to topical testosterone should be made aware that there is risk to the fetus and contact their doctor immediately.
Possible side effects
Tell your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms in a severe and/or persistent manner: breast tenderness and/or enlargement, acne, diminished sexual drive, skin irritation or dryness or redness, hair thinning or loss, mood changes including depression, diarrhea, or teary eyes.
Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of the following serious symptoms: shortness of breath, chest pain, lower leg pain or swelling or redness, slow or difficult speech, weakness or numbness of an arm or leg, , dizziness or faintness, difficulty urinating, nausea or vomiting, swelling of ankles or feet or hands, erections that last too long, or yellowing of the eyes or skin.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that there is a possible increased risk of cardiovascular events associated with testosterone use. Some studies that included aging men treated with testosterone have reported an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or death associated with testosterone treatment while other studies did not. FDA has also stated that the efficacy and safety of testosterone have not been established for treating age-related low testosterone levels, even if a man’s symptoms seem related to low testosterone.
PHOSPHODIESTERASE TYPE 5-INHIBITOR (PDE5i) TREATMENT (SILDENAFIL OR TADALAFIL)
Special precautions before using PDE5i
Tell your doctor if you have a known or suspected allergy to PDE5i or other medications. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and non-prescription medications (including supplements) that you take or are planning to take. Tell your doctor if you have a history of cardiovascular, pulmonary veno-occlusive, or retinal disease. Tell your doctor if you use drugs commonly called “poppers,” such as butyl nitrite or amyl nitrite. Tell your doctor if you are taking isosorbide dinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, nitroglycerin, ritinovir, riociguat, ketoconazole, itraconazole, other medications to treat erectile dysfunction including intracavernosal injections. Tell your doctor if you have difficulty briskly walking up two flights of stairs. Tell your doctor if you have a history of priapism, prolonged erection or sickle cell trait or disease. This medication is not for use in women or children.
Possible side effects
These medications can cause dizziness. Avoid driving or other tasks that require alertness until you have experience with how this medication affects you. Get up slowly from a lying or seated position to reduce the risk of dizziness. Common side effects include facial flushing, headache, heartburn, muscle aches, or nasal congestion. Seek immediate medical attention if you have signs of an allergic reaction including hives, itching, wheezing, peeling skin, fever, tightness in the chest or difficulty swallowing or swelling of the mouth or tongue. Seek immediate attention if you experience chest pain or pressure, fast or irregular heartbeat, vomiting or severe nausea, or onset of weakness or drooping on one side of your body. Seek immediate medical attention if you have a change in vision, ringing in the ears, or any other changes related to hearing. Very rare severe problems have been associated with these medications, in some cases causing death. Although it has not been definitively established that this medication caused these problems, it is possible; these include severe vision problems, tonic-clonic seizures, severe increase in blood pressure and/or stroke or heart attack. This medication type does not stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV and hepatitis. Discuss safer sex practices with your doctor. This medication has been associated with priapism, or prolonged rigid penile erection of > 4 hours (even in the absence of sexual stimulation or activity). Priapism is a condition that causes penile pain and, left untreated, can lead to severe permanent erectile dysfunction. Seek immediate medical attention if you ever become concerned about a prolonged and/or painful erection of any duration (even less than 4 hours).
