FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: FORTESTA

User Comments:


For Hypogonadism, Male “This is an update from an earlier post. 4 pumps works so well my doctor is backing me off to 3 pumps. I have found Fortesta works for me better than the generic that my pharmacy was giving me. Changed pharmacies and got the name brand-generics just don’t seem to do it for me.I found some decent information on YouTube about weight loss while on testosterone and a couple of people pointed out that if you are overweight before starting TRT, you may end up also producing estrogen and not be able to lose weight. This did happen to me and being almost 50 has forced me to change my diet.Finally started losing weight and my free test numbers have gone through the roof. I am surprised at how much information is available. Not from doctors…”

For Hypogonadism, Male “Works great. Was experiencing adverse effects of low T and my doctor confirmed it. He prescribed this to me as 2 pumps per leg per day. At first it took about 45 minutes to absorb but now it takes about 5-10 minutes and goes on easily. My wife now complains that my libido is too strong LOL. I love this. I hope you have similar experience as I do. My insurance didn’t want to cover the other popular brands. The Pharmacy specialist in my insurance told me to go for this as they would cover it right off the bat. Glad I spoke to them. Just $20.00 per two bottle refills.”

For Hypogonadism, Male “I stayed it after finding I was very low on T. Started at 4 pumps and went up and felt great, a year later my levels were dropping. Doc increased me to 6 pumps and it did nothing. Now he’s taking me off it because it seems it’s caused my hemoglobin to go way high and at risk for a stroke or heart attack.”

For Hypogonadism, Male “6 pumps put me at 800. Have not lost any weight, helps erections and stamina and I’m happy to have it since it is all my insurance would pay for. Did not respond to the compounded creme which is a bummer since it’s so inexpensive.I am being referred to an endo for the pellets but would recommend Fortesta for anyone interested in a topical solution.”

For Hypogonadism, Male “This was easy to use and I experienced no side effects. I will say that it did little to nothing to bring up my levels which remain around 200. I am not sure that is the medicines fault, as I have been told that different people respond differently to various types of T replacement gels. After about 2 years of not being able to get levels up to normal range, I am headed to look at pellet implants as a last course of treatment.”

For Hypogonadism, Male “Asked my doctor for 3 years to blood test me for low T. Now its popular he finally did. It was 100. I’ve always been overweight, very hard for me to lose weight. Dr. Gave me fortesta. It did not work for me. It gave me large itchy rashes on my thighs. And raised T level only to 200. I went to my urologist and asked him for testosterone cyponate to inject. Now 1 1/2 years later my T level is 350 to 900 depending when injection and blood test . I’ve lost 100lbs, I’m horny like a rabbit now. And I never was that horny. All of my numbers are where they supposed to be with blood test every 3 months. So if guys are in a similar situation, injection is the way to go. Unfortunately your testicles will shrink.”
