|Preparing to self administer injections||There is no special preparation for administering these injections in general. Before usage, it is recommended that patients check this medication by carefully looking for any particles or discoloration in the solution. If this is found, discard immediately. The area of injection will be cleaned with an alcohol pad and careful delivery will be completed with a sterile needle.|
|Where to inject||Shots are delivered by deep intramuscular injection only. They are usually delivered in the thigh muscle, the deltoid muscle or the glut muscle. Some doctors will say that these injections should only be given in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteus maximus. They are never to be injected into a vein.|
|Determining the dosage to take||Information from an article written by the Pfizer & Upjohn Company regarding Depo-Testosterone (testosterone cypionate) sterile solution dosage shared that the usual dosage of this medication is between 50 and 400 mg of testosterone cypionate or testosterone enanthate every two to four weeks. The dosage of this medication by injection is determined by the patient’s blood tests, medical history, physical examination, severity of symptoms, age, gender and by their history of any prior similar kind of therapy. Only a licensed doctor should make this determination.|
|What to do after you inject the medication||There is nothing special that needs to be done after the injection is administered. There may be some slight discomfort in the delivery area due to the deep intramuscular shot, but a man can continue about his day following the process. Never stop using the medication suddenly. Stick to your prescription or speak to your doctor if you feel any negative side effects at all.|

- Where are the best testosterone cypionate injection sites?
As many websites, clinics and professionals will share, the best place to inject this medication is in the upper outer quadrant of the gluteus maximus. However, other professionals will also say that it is okay to inject the medication in the thigh muscle or the deltoid muscle in the upper arm. Injections should only be given by deep intramuscular delivery and never into a vein.
- What is the correct dosage when injecting testosterone cypionate?
In general, the general dosage of testosterone cypionate or testosterone enanthate is between 50 and 400 mg of testosterone cypionate or testosterone enanthate every two to four weeks.
The dosage of medication that a patient will take should only be determined by a licensed physician; the one who has analyzed the patient’s blood work, physical exam results and medical history. Dosage is usually also based on one’s current medical condition, their testosterone blood levels (as shown through testing) and their response to treatment. Dosage can always be adjusted as needed.
- What to do after an injection of testosterone cypionate is completed.
After the injection of this medication, the muscle may be a bit sore. This is normal and the feeling will go away shortly. Always make sure to understand how to store and discard medical supplies safely. Patients of Greenberg Health will get a safe storage disposal container for their used needles and syringes.
Patients are reminded that they can call toll free to their clinical advisor if they have any questions throughout the therapeutic process.
