What are the risks of using a androderm (testosterone) patch that expired in 2001? Will it still work and is it safe enough to use?

Patch: It is probably still OK but it is expensive You are better off learning to give yourself testosterone injections every two weeks ( may be less oor more frequent - you and your significant other will know). It is way less expensive.
