    Has a man actually taken the responsibility for this pill yet? Is a mans responsibility as effective as a ladies when taken the pill? I have no idea what side effects are to this pill?

    testosterone is what causes men to be more muscular, so i dont think it might do anything wrong if a man takes a little bit of pills but if its gona be for a long time then , his body is going to depend on those pills and it will stop producing its own testosterone

    my doctor had perscribed testosterone in the form of a gel for me, because I was complaining about fatigue, it was supposed to give me increased energy, but I didnt have any side affects of any kind. I didnt get bigger muscles or grow more hair, my scotum didnt change, nothing happened, but it did wake me up a bit.
