Types of Low Testosterone Drugs
Some of the most commonly prescribed low-T treatments include:
Other name brand prescriptions include Striant, Delatestryl, and Fortesta. Talk to your doctor if you have a concern about the testosterone drug or therapy you are currently on. Some research indicates that use of these Low-T products can lead to major heart events in men.
Who is at risk?
Two categories of men have been listed as primarily at risk for heart events while taking Low-T drugs:
- Men currently living with a heart condition
- Men over the age of 65
If you are currently living with a heart condition, have high blood pressure, or have suffered heart attack/stroke in the past, research suggests that taking Low-T drugs could put you at a greater risk for suffering a serious heart event.
Likewise, men over the age of 65 should be cautioned before taking Low-T drugs. Some of the newest health studies indicate that risk of suffering a serious heart event could as much as double in men over 65 once they start taking a Low-T drug.
Alternatives to Low-T Drugs
There are many natural ways that men can boost their testosterone levels. If you have concerns about the Low-T drug or treatment you are currently on, your doctor may recommend one or more of the following alternatives:
- Regular exercise – Most doctors recommend that men struggling with low testosterone work regular exercise into their schedule, at least three days a week for a duration of 20 minutes.
- 7-8 hours of sleep per night – Some men may be able to boost their testosterone levels simply by getting a good night's rest. Most doctors will recommend a solid 7-8 hours.
- Avoiding known stressors – Stress and high anxiety often contribute to low testosterone levels. Doctors may recommend taking a vacation, avoiding working long hours, or doing things you know will cause anxiety.
