testosterone-transdermal (scrotal), Testoderm
GENERIC NAME: TESTOSTERONE - TRANSDERMAL (SCROTAL) (tess-TOSS-ter-own)
BRAND NAME(S): Testoderm
USES: These medicated patches contain testosterone. Testosterone is a male sex hormone responsible for growth and development of male sex organs and male sex characteristics such as chest hair, facial hair, pubic hair, voice changes and muscle growth. The patches are used to treat low testosterone levels.
HOW TO USE: Apply a patch to the scrotum as directed, usually one patch each day. To use the patch, remove the protective backing to expose the adhesive surface. Place patch with the adhesive side on clean, dry scrotal skin. For best results, shave scrotal hair (do not use chemical hair removers). The patch is worn for 22 to 24 hours then replaced with a new patch. To discard a patch, remove it and fold it so the adhesive side is on the outside. Place the folded patch in the pouch from which the new patch is taken and discard it in the trash. The patches will not be effective if applied to sites other than scrotal skin.
