About Testosterone Topical Solution CIII
Testosterone topical solution is indicated for replacement therapy in males for conditions associated with a deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone:

Primary hypogonadism (congenital or acquired): testicular failure due to conditions such as cryptorchidism, bilateral torsion, orchitis, vanishing testis syndrome, orchiectomy, Klinefelter’s syndrome, chemotherapy, or toxic damage from alcohol or heavy metals. These men usually have low serum testosterone concentrations and gonadotropins (FSH, LH) above the normal range.

Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired): gonadotropin or luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) deficiency or pituitary-hypothalamic injury from tumors, trauma, or radiation. These men have low testosterone serum concentrations but have gonadotropins in the normal or low range.

Limitations of use: Safety and efficacy of testosterone topical solution in men with “age-related hypogonadism” (also referred to as “late-onset hypogonadism”) have not been established. Safety and efficacy of testosterone topical solution in males less than 18 years old have not been established.

Due to lack of controlled studies in women and potential virilizing effects, testosterone topical solution is not indicated for use in women.

Important Safety Information
WARNING: SECONDARY EXPOSURE TO TESTOSTERONE. Virilization has been reported in children who were secondarily exposed to topical testosterone products. Children should avoid contact with unwashed or unclothed application sites in men using testosterone topical solution. Healthcare providers should advise patients to strictly adhere to recommended instructions for use.

Testosterone topical solution is contraindicated in men with carcinoma of the breast or known or suspected carcinoma of the prostate. Testosterone topical solution is contraindicated in women who are, or who may become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding. Testosterone topical solution may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Testosterone topical solution may cause serious adverse reactions in nursing infants. If a pregnant woman is exposed to testosterone topical solution, she should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus.

Other serious risks include: worsening of benign prostatic hyperplasia, potential risk of prostate cancer, polycythemia, venous thromboembolism, cardiovascular risk, potential for adverse effects on spermatogenesis, hepatic adverse effects, edema, gynecomastia, sleep apnea, changes in serum lipid profile, hypercalcemia, and decreased thyroxine-binding globulin.

Testosterone has been subject to abuse, typically at doses higher than recommended for the approved indication and in combination with other anabolic androgenic steroids. Anabolic androgenic steroid abuse can lead to serious cardiovascular and psychiatric adverse reactions.

In clinical trials, the most common adverse reactions (incidence greater than 4%) were skin application site reactions, increased hematocrit, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and increased serum prostate specific antigen (PSA).
