1. What Sustandrol is and what it is used for
Sustandrol contains the active substance testosterone in the form of 4 ester forms (testosterone propionate, testosterone phenylpropionate, testosterone isocaproate, testosterone decanoate). Sustandrol’s active substances are transformed into your body into testosterone. Testosterone is a male hormone that is part of the androgen hormone group.
In men, testosterone is produced by the testicles. It is necessary for the normal growth, development and functioning of male sexual organs and the development of secondary male characteristics. It is necessary for the growth of hair on the body, the development of bones and muscles and stimulates the production of erythrocytes. At the same time, medicine gives the voice an accentuated tone.
Sustandrol is used in adult men in the testosterone replacement therapy to treat various health problems caused by lack of testosterone (male hypogonadism). This has to be confirmed by two separate measurements of testosterone levels in the blood and also includes clinical symptoms such as impotence, infertility, low appetite, fatigue, depressive states and bone loss caused by the low level of hormones.

2. What you need to know before you use Sustandrol
Do not use Sustandrol
– 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 androgenic cancer – dependent on the prostate or mammary gland;
– using during pregnancy and lactation is contraindicated.
Sustandrol is not for use in children and adolescents. There are no data available on the use of Sustandrol 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.
Warnings and precautions
If you notice any signs of masculinization (for example thickening of the voice or increased body or facial hair), contact your doctor immediately.
Treatment with male hormones such as testosterone can increase the size of the prostate, especially in elderly men. Therefore, your doctor will examine your prostate at regular intervals by rectal retention and prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood testing.
In addition, at regular intervals, blood tests will be performed to check the oxygen-transferring substance (hemoglobin) in the erythrocytes.In very rare cases, the number of erythrocytes in the blood can increase exaggerated, which leads to complications.
The following blood tests should be performed before and during your treatment: blood testosterone levels, blood counts.
Also, medical checks may be required under other conditions. Therefore, before you start using this medicine, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have had, or are, or are suspected of having:
• Breast cancer with bone metastases;
• Renal or lung cancer;

• Epilepsy;
• Migraines, headaches;
• Prostate disorders such as urinary problems;
• Blood clotting disorders – thrombophilia (a blood coagulation abnormality that increases the risk of thrombosis – the presence of blood clots in blood vessels).
If you suffer from severe heart, liver or kidney disease, treatment with Sustandrol may cause severe complications in the form of water retention in the body, sometimes accompanied by congestive heart failure.
Tell your doctor if you have hypertension or if you are receiving high blood pressure because testosterone may cause an increase in blood pressure. If you have sleep apnea (temporary stopping of breathing during sleep), it may get worse, if you use testosterone-containing products. Tell your doctor if you are worried about it. If you are overweight or have chronic lung disease, additional supervision by your doctor may be required.

Keeping Sustandrol level 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 Sustandrol is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor.
If you use more Sustandrol than you should
