There : There is an interaction between Androderm (testosterone) and systemic steroids. It doesn't mean you can't have the shot, but it would depend on which steroid is being injected (a soluble steroid is gone from the body in a few hours and is less likely to cause an interaction with the Androderm (testosterone) patch). Whoever is planning on giving you the shot should consult with whomever has prescribed the Androderm (testosterone) patch.

Ask your doctor: One cannot give generic advice regarding a medication that is possibly causing side effects. You need to seek the advice of the prescribing doctor.
