Side Effects of Testosterone Topical Solution

Common Testosterone Topical Solution Side Effects

Testosterone topical solution has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of men using the medication were carefully documented. The most commonly reported reactions included:
  • Armpit irritation -- in up to 8 percent of men
  • Armpit redness -- up to 7 percent
  • Headache -- up to 6 percent
  • Diarrhea -- up to 4 percent
  • Vomiting -- up to 4 percent.
In addition, up to 7 percent of men using testosterone topical solution had an increased hematocrit (a measure of red blood cells), and up to 4 percent had increased prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. Some men may need to stop using testosterone topical solution due to these side effects.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the testosterone topical solution side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using testosterone topical solution. Also, let your healthcare provider know if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
