Depo-Testosterone is a type of testosterone treatment that comes in the form of an injection. It is considered an intramuscular injection and is used to treat low testosterone levels in men (also known as male hypogonadism or testosterone deficiency). While reduced testosterone levels are a normal part of male aging, they are often accompanied by unwanted health effects such as hair loss, decreased muscle density and lower sex drive.
This low T treatment was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on July 25, 1979. It is manufactured by the company Pfizer. It comes in two strengths: 100 mg/ml and 200 mg/ml.
Side effects associated with Depo-Testosterone include:
Similar to other low T treatments, Depo-Testosterone has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart attack or death. Studies have shown that men with heart problems were more likely to suffer a stroke, heart attack or death compared to healthy men who were not taking low T treatments.

"I lost my wife to a heart attack caused by a dangerous drug. While nothing I do will ever bring her back, the Simmons firm helped ensure that other people won’t have to suffer the same loss as me. That product is no longer on the market and the company responsible for selling it to my wife paid a heavy financial price for hurting people like her."
