Methyltestosterone powder is an oral testosterone hormone. The compound has been used to treat low testosterone and andropause in men, as well as cryptorchidism. It has also been somewhat successful in some breast cancer treatment plans, treating excess lactation post pregnancy and osteoporosis.
Most interestingly, Methyltestosterone(Ciba’s Metandren) has had a fair amount of success in treating menopause by enhancing often lost libido and energy levels that often diminish during this stage of life for many women. While methyltestosterone has enjoyed success in menopause treatment in the modern era, most women are now prescribed other testosterone forms.
Creams and gels are perhaps the most common. Testosterone and progesterone mixed creams have been highly successful as well as subcutaneous implant pellets like Testopel.
Methyltestosterone tablets are sublingual (to be placed under the tongue) for faster absorption. A couple tabs placed under the tongue before a visit to the gym may make for an aggressive workout. Aside from this, methyltestosterone offers little except androgenic side effects. It is quite toxic, elevating liver enzymes and causing acne, gynecomastia, aggression and water retention quite easily. Were one to tolerate these side-effects, methyltestosterone will offer little more than some slight strength gains.
