What is Androxy?
USES: This medication is used in men who do not make enough of a natural substance called testosterone. In males, testosterone is responsible for many normal functions, including growth and development of the genitals, muscles, and bones. It also helps cause normal sexual development (puberty) in boys. Fluoxymesterone is similar to the natural testosterone produced by your body. It belongs to a class of drugs known as androgens. It works by affecting many body systems so that the body can develop and function normally. Fluoxymesterone may also be used in certain adolescent boys to cause puberty in those with delayed puberty.
How to take Androxy
HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth with or without food, usually 1 to 4 times a day, as directed by your doctor. Dosage is based on your medical condition, testosterone blood levels, and response to treatment. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Misuse or abuse of a testosterone-related product can cause serious side effects such as heart disease (including heart attack), stroke, liver disease, mental/mood problems, abnormal drug-seeking behavior, or improper bone growth (in adolescents).
