1. What Cipandrol is and what it is used for
Cipandrol contains as active substance testosterone cipionate, a male hormone.
Cipandrol is injected into a muscle.
Testosterone cipionate is a manufactured form of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which is naturally secreted. It is used in men to replace testosterone for treating various health problems caused by lack of testosterone (male hypogonadism).
This must be confirmed by two separate testosterone measurements in the blood and also include clinical symptoms such as impotence, infertility, low sexual desire, fatigue, depressive states, bone loss caused by low levels of testosterone hormone.

2. What you need to know before you use Cipandrol
Do not use Cipandrol:
• if you are allergic to testosterone or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (see section 6);
• if you have or have been suspected of androgen-related cancer of the prostate or mammary gland;
• if you have or have liver tumors;
• if you have had a high level of calcium in the blood along with malignant tumors;
• if you have or have had a previous heart attack or have other serious heart disease;
• if you have atherosclerosis (pathology in which blood fats are deposited on the vascular wall);
• if you suffer from diabetes;
• administration during pregnancy and lactation is contraindicated.
Cipandrol is not intended for use in children and adolescents. There are no data available on the use of Cipandrol in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. In children, besides the fact that it can lead to the early development of male secondary sexual characteristics (masculinization), testosterone can cause an accelerated bones growth and stop their growth, thus reducing the final height. The appearance of common acne forms is expected.
Cipandrol is not recommended for muscle building in healthy individuals or for increasing physical strength.

Warnings and precautions
Tell your doctor if you have or ever had:
• liver problems, including severe upper abdominal pain complaints;
• you suffer from sleep apnea (breathing disruption during sleep), as this may worsen;
• you suffer from severe heart, liver or kidney disease; treatment with testosterone cipionate may cause severe complications in the form of water retention in the body, sometimes accompanied by congestive heart failure;
• high blood pressure or if you are being treated for high blood pressure because testosterone may cause an increase in blood pressure;
• have or have ever had problems with blood clotting; thrombophilia (an abnormality of blood clotting that increases the risk of thrombosis – blood clots in blood vessels);
• you have epilepsy, migraine, diabetes or a cancer of the bone.
Like all oily solutions, Cipandrol should be injected strictly intramuscularly and very slowly. In rare cases, lung microemulsion of oily solutions may cause symptoms such as cough, dyspnea, indigestion, sweating, chest pain, dizziness or syncope. These reactions may occur during or immediately after the injection and are reversible.
Testosterone cypionate should not be used in women because they may show signs of virilization, such as acne, hair growth on the face or body, and voice change.

Medical examination/consultation
Male hormones can help increase prostate and glandular cancer prostatic hyperplasia (benign prostatic hypertrophy). Before your doctor to inject testosterone cipionate, it will examine you to make sure that you do not have prostate cancer. If you are older, you may have one increased risk of developing prostate enlargement when using cypionate testosterone. Although there is no clear evidence that sex hormones such as cypion of testosterone, actually generates prostate cancer, can increase the growth of any existing cancers of the prostate.
As a precautionary measure, regular examinations are recommended for men prostate, especially if you are elderly.
If you are treated in the long term, androgen treatment should be performed periodically (see section 4. “Possible side effects”).
The following blood tests should be performed by your doctor before and during treatment:
• testosterone levels in the blood;
• general blood analysis.
Following the use of hormonal substances, such as androgenic compounds, rare cases of benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) liver tumors have been observed. Although it is unlikely that a tumor will appear, they would present a health concern. In isolated cases, internal bleeding may develop from these tumors, which could endanger life.
You should therefore consult a doctor when you suffer from severe abdominal pain. Not all the unusual sensations you can feel in the upper abdomen may be considered as a possible sign of tumor or bleeding. Pain that does not disappear in a short time should, however, be better consulted with your doctor.

3. How to use Cipandrol
Injection will be given very slowly in a muscle by a doctor or a nurse. The number of injections given per day or per week is called “dose”. Depending on the condition you are being treated, your doctor will administer the appropriate dose by injection into a muscle.
To stimulate the development of underdeveloped androgen-dependent organs and for the initial treatment of endogenous testosterone deficiency symptoms, intramuscular testosterone cypionate 50 mg – 200 mg every 2 to 4 weeks is administered.
It is not recommended to exceed the 400 mg dose per month. The duration of treatment is determined individually.
The dosage is adjusted according to the patient’s response to treatment and the occurrence of adverse reactions
Serum testosterone levels should be measured before treatment and occasionally during treatment and at the end of the injection period. Serum levels below the normal range would indicate the need for a shorter injection interval. In case of elevated serum concentrations, an extension of the injection interval may be considered.
The correct dose will be decided by your doctor. If you are not sure ask your doctor. Elderly male patients may be prescribed lower doses.
During treatment with Cipandrol injection, your doctor will perform regular prostate screening.
Cipandrol is only used for intramuscular injection. Special care should be taken to avoid injecting into a blood vessel.
Cipandrol solution for injection in vials may be used several times after the first injection provided that the vial cap was not removed and the remaining contents remained hermetically sealed.
Start treatment
Your doctor will measure your blood testosterone concentration before starting treatment and during the first stages of treatment.
Keep the level of Cipandrol during treatment
Your doctor will periodically measure your testosterone plasma concentration at the end of an injection interval. If the level is too low, your doctor may decide to give you injections more frequently. Plasma concentrations below the normal range indicate the need to shorten the interval between injections. In the event of elevated plasma concentrations, your doctor may consider an increase in the interval between injections. Do not miss the injections schedule because it will not keep your optimal testosterone level.
If you have the impression that the effect of Cipandrol is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor.
If you use more Cipandrol than you should
Your doctor will determine the optimal injection interval to avoid excessive increase in testosterone levels in the blood. In the event of accidental overdose, no special therapeutic measures are required, with the exception of stopping treatment or reducing the number of injections.

• irritability;
• nervousness;
• weight gain;
• long or frequent erections.
