Aveed® – Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Aveed-featured

What is AVEED®?

AVEED® is a prescription medicine that containstestosterone, a controlled substance (CIII). AVEED® is used to treat adult males who have low or no testosterone due to certain medical conditions. AVEED® is only for adult males who need testosterone replacement therapy and when the benefit of receiving AVEED® is more than the risk of pulmonary oil microembolism (POME) and anaphylaxis.

What is hypogonadism?

Hypogonadism is a term used to describe low testosterone in men, and occurs when the male testes are unable to produce sufficient testosterone (the male sex hormone). This results in low levels of testosterone.

Ask About Treating Hypogonadism with AVEED®

If you’ve been diagnosed with hypogonadism, you may be talking about treatment with your doctor.

AVEED® (testosterone undecanoate) injection is a long-acting prescription medicine that contains testosterone and is used to treat adult males who have hypogonadism.

Why AVEED®

If you have hypogonadism, you may be talking with your doctor about controlling your testosterone levels.

In a clinical trial, 94% of men who received AVEED® injections maintained average testosterone levels within the normal range for 10 full weeks after the third injection. 5.1% of patients had testosterone levels below normal range, and 0.9% of patients had testosterone levels above normal range.

What to Expect When You Receive AVEED®

AVEED® is an injection that is always given at the doctor’s office. AVEED® is only available through your
doctor’s office, clinic, or hospital, and it is not a medicine you will give yourself at home.

How your prescription gets filled:

Your physician may either buy AVEED® and bill your health plan or order through a Specialty Pharmacy. The Specialty Pharmacy will contact you to collect your payment, bill your health plan, if applicable, and deliver the medication to your doctor’s office prior to your appointment.

If your physician orders through a Specialty Pharmacy, you should expect to receive a phone call from your Specialty Pharmacy prior to each injection.

When you receive AVEED®, here’s what you should expect:
  1. Your doctor will inject AVEED® into the muscle of your buttock. Receiving the injection itself takes approximately 60 to 90 seconds.
  2. Remain at the doctor’s office for 30 minutes in case you experience any serious injection-related side effects.
  3. Return to the doctor’s office for regular injections. You will get an
    injection when you start, another injection 4 weeks later, and then an injection every 10 weeks.

Your doctor will test your blood before you receive and while you are receiving AVEED®.

AVEED® can cause serious side effects including lung problems and allergic reactions. Serious side effects relating to the heart and blood vessels and mental status are associated with abuse of testosterone and anabolic androgenic steroids.

Be Sure to Keep Up With Your AVEED® Treatments as Prescribed
